Koniag - AES conducted a geotechnical investigation for a potential quarry resource located on the northeast tip of Kodiak Island. The investigation relied heavily on GIS tools to aid in identifying structural lineaments and potential massive rock zones. In particular, LiDAR data was used to see through the heavy tree canopy allowing AES geologists to classify structure zones and estimate potential block sizes. Since 2000, AES has provided resource consulting and helped develop Koniag’s first GIS-compatible database of the regional corporation’s resources.
