An accurate and cost effective groundwater location service is now available to help farmers anywhere in Australia find bore water. A new company, Geo9 , has launched an alternative to divining and exploratory drilling.  

Geo9’s team of experienced geologists and geophysicists find water using scientific methods. “We can help any farmer looking for new or improved sources of groundwater “says Maya Sydney, Principal of the new company. “Our service reduces the risk of wasting money on futile drilling efforts.”

Geo9 has a 9 step approach to finding groundwater that combines aerial and satellite data analysis with on-site geophysical surveying. “Geo9 can’t eliminate all risk associated with drilling, but we can maximise your probability of success”, says Sydney. “We can’t guarantee to find water, but we guarantee a comprehensive approach that won’t cost you the earth.” 

Geo9’s scientists have extensive experience conducting groundwater investigations for small and large landowners, for irrigation companies, councils, government, mining companies and golf clubs.

According to Geo9’s Principal Exploration Geologist, Paul Ferguson, “We’re offering farmers the benefit of advanced technologies that are most commonly used in the mining industry.” He adds, “Geo9’s service is far more accurate and reliable than divining. We help farmers get a realistic view of their sustainable groundwater resources.”

“We are committed to making useful information available to every Australian farmer”, says one of Geo9’s geophysicists, Dubbo-based Dr David Allen. In 2007 Dr Allen authored a Federal government report on the use of geophysics in irrigation. “Geo9 can offer state-of-the-art geophysics and presentation of groundwater data that is affordable for the average farmer.”

Geo9’s Maya Sydney adds, “Even in areas where new groundwater licenses are not being issued, we can help find improved locations for existing supplies or help local government authorities with town supplies.”
