Hand Augering

Hand augering is a great technique for investigating shallow ground conditions where the access is very poor. If you can walk there, you can hand auger. Itís commonly used for check the ground conditions for housing subsidence investigations. Depths up to 3 m are possible, although itís not so good in granular materials where the borehole isnít self-supporting, or if there are cobbles to obstruct progress.
