Message from the President

Welcome to the CSR website and thank you for thinking of us for your project requirements. I often fondly look back on the 100’s of projects, large and small that we have completed for our clients over the last 35 years. Each of these projects brings back a unique memory. It might be a great client working relationship, or tough logistics that we overcame or just spectacular geology that we imaged, despite technical challenges.

Our staff has extensive field experience often working in logistically difficult locations. These projects we find particularly rewarding when we are able to deliver the results that you need for your design purposes.


You will find that our project life cycle is heavily weighted towards preparation:

  • Understanding your requirements
  • Assessment of the local geology and setting
  • Understanding the logistical constraints on our operations
  • Applying sound geophysical theory
  • Selecting a complementary suite of imaging equipment
  • Optimizing ground truth strategies
  • Executing the project cost effectively
  • Delivering professional results in a Timely fashion

Don’t hesitate to give us a call should you like to discuss your project requirements. We always enjoy hearing from you!
