Construction & Engineering

You may not realise it but geological materials underpin everything we need to sustain our life as we know it. From the fuels we use to run our cars, to the numerous minerals that are in your mobile phone, to the minerals and water in the food and drink we rely on. These geological materials are split into rocks, minerals and fluids or gas contained in rocks. Another key use of these geological materials is in construction.
