Geotechnical borehole point

Geotechnical data comes from investigations performed by geotechnical engineers to obtain information on the physical properties of soil and rock underlying a site for proposed structures. The investigations include surface exploration and subsurface exploration of a site. In addition, site investigations will often include subsurface sampling and laboratory testing of the soil samples retrieved. The digging of test pits and trenching may also be used to learn about soil conditions at depth. Geotechnical data is relevant to our permafrost database as it contains logs of ice encountered at various depths.

Yukon Geological Survey has been compiling geotechnical data from various organizations and branches. The main datasets being compiled are the following:

Northern Climate Exchange

Community Services, Land Branch

Energy Mines and Resources, Abandoned Mines

Transportation Engineering Branch

Alaska Highway Borehole Database

Agriculture soil profiles
