GCG is pleased to announce that the long-awaited article “Clay Stratigraphy of the Lambeth Group of Borehole IOD8R”, has been published online in the Proceedings of the Geologists’ Association.
Clay mineralogist Dr Jenny Huggett and GCG’s Senior Consultant Dr Jackie Skipper analysed the range of properties of the Lambeth Group clays from the Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) ground investigations and this paper demonstrates how very widely the clay mineralogy can vary, dependant on primary deposition and secondary weathering conditions.

In addition to other contributions, GCG: (i) designed and oversaw most of the ground investigations, (ii) prepared the interpretative reports, and (iii) undertook the GI database compilation & checking for the Elizabeth Line. This work provided much new information and an enhanced characterisation of the Lambeth Group.
Colleagues in the Crossrail Project will recognise “IOD” in the paper name as representing “Isle of Dogs”, the previous name for the Canary Wharf area of London. We hope the paper is useful.
