Anthropogenic: Borehole is located at new town development site. Presently the area in general is being drained in order to accommodate the construction of new buildings, but the actual site is directly affected by draining at this point.
Sedimentary strata, Quarternary, late to post glacial (?).
The geology encountered in the borehole consisted of 0.4 m peat layer above a 0.8 m thick layer of post glacial fluvial sand followed by an 11.5 m thick sequence of possibly marine highly compact clayey silt. Bedrock was encountered at 13.0 m b.g.s. following a thin stone layer of possible glacial origin. Ice lenses were encountered in the borehole from 1.0 m to 2.6 m b.g.s.
