Managing adverse effects of acid mine drainage at Stockton Opencast Coalmine : a geotechnical and geochemical approach.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Geological Sciences, 2005)
Stockton Opencast Coalmine has well documented acid mine drainage (AMD), which is the result of oxidation and leaching of sulfide-rich Brunner Coal Measures waste rock. This thesis investigates the potential of mitigating ...
Patterns of Crustal Deformation Resulting from the 2010 Earthquake Sequence in Christchurch, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2012)
The Mw 7.1 Darfield earthquake generated a ~30 km long surface rupture on the Greendale Fault and significant surface deformation related to related blind faults on a previously unrecognized fault system beneath the ...
The Hope Fault at Hossack Station east of Hanmer Basin, North Canterbury
(University of Canterbury. Geology, 1991)
Oblique convergence of the Pacific and Australian Plates is accommodated in the northern South Island by the Marlborough Fault System. The Hope Fault is the southern of four major dextral strike-slip faults of this system. ...

Engineering Geological Characterisation and Slope Stability Assessment of Whitehall Quarry, Waikato.
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2010)
Whitehall Quarry is located 4 km east of Karapiro, near Cambridge within the Waikato District. Current quarrying operations produce between 150,000 and 300,000 tonnes of aggregate for use in the surrounding region. This ...
Site investigations for residential development on the Port Hills, Christchurch.
(University of Canterbury. Geology, 1989)
Three site investigations for residential development on the Port Hills gave a chance to document remedial measures in volcanic bedrock (McCormacks Bay) and cut and fill operations in loess (Westmorland), and to carry out ...
Active tectonics, geomorphology and groundwater recharge to the Waipara - Kowai Zone, North Canterbury
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2009)
The Waipara – Kowai groundwater allocation zones (referred to as zones) are located 50 kilometers north of Christchurch. Land use in the Waipara zone has evolved from dry land farming towards horticultural and irrigated ...
Earthquake Induced Fissuring in Banks Peninsula Loessial Soils: a Geotechnical Investigation of the Ramahana Road Fissure Trace
(University of Canterbury, 2016)
One of the less understood geotechnical responses to the cyclic loading from the MW6.2 Christchurch Earthquake, on the 22nd of February 2011, is the fissuring in the loessial soil-mantled, footslope positions of the ...
Rockfall Modelling Parameters and the Control Barrier at Stockton Mine, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2007)
Solid Energy New Zealand plans to mine a 6 to 10m thick coal seam below the Mt. Augustus and Mt. Fredrick ridgeline at Stockton Mine near Westport, NZ. The coal is covered by up to 30m of overburden, which requires removal ...
Active Tectonic and Paleoseismic Investigation of the Lower Mikonui Valley in Westland, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury, 2016)
This study investigates an active southeast-dipping reverse fault mapped in the lower reaches of the Mikonui River in Westland, New Zealand. The fault, referred to as the Lower Mikonui Fault, and the nearby Flagstaff ...
