Thanks to the OD-ODEX technique, the Magma Group can intervene in backfill zones (riprap, rock fill, etc.) in order to drill holes aimed at reaching the natural soil.

To date, the Magma Group is one of the few in Africa to use this technique to serve its customers 

  • Core drilling (single, double, triple corers)
  • Pressiometric soundings (with automatic recordings on GEO-BOX) for low or high pressures.
  • Destructive air probes (OD-ODEX) for rock fill.
In-situ tests
  • Pressiometric tests
  • SPT Tests
  • Site Scissometers
  • Phycometers
  • Dilatometers
  • Water tests (Lugeon, Le Franc, etc...)
