ACLCA CPD Program Module 4 - Introduction to Soil and Rock Logging

Who should attend:

This module will target all professionals within the contaminated land industry (ideally 0-4 years experience) completing intrusive soil and rock investigations.


The objective of this module is to provide an introduction to soil and rock logging to Australian and USCS standards via both theory and practical (hands-on) sessions and provide confidence and calibration to field staff completing intrusive assessments.

At the end of the session your staff should:

  • Gain an understanding of Melbourne lithology and expected soils types.
  • Become familiar with the relevant Australian and USCS guidance documents for soil and rock logging, including AS1726:2017 amendments.
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of soil and rock logging parameters (e.g. colour, consistency, grain size, moisture, weathering, strength, defects) and associated field tests commonly used in the field and laboratory.

The day will be split 50/50 into theory and practical sessions, for both soil and rock logging by the following presenters:

  • Patrick Clark is a Senior Principal Geological Engineer at Senversa with over 27 years’ of experience in contaminated site assessment and remediation, whom has run internal theory and practical based soil logging training sessions at Senversa for several years.
  • Trevor Smith is a Principal Engineering Geologist at Tonkin Taylor with over 25 years’ experience.  Trevor has experience working across a wide variety of geological terrains and has extensive geological mapping and logging experience. He has run many internal rock logging training sessions over the last decade and has been a guest lecturer at QUT.
