Forir Geo Exploration

Our Story

Forir Geo Exploration was started in October of 2012 by Matt Forir. As a geologist for Greene County Mo, Forir saw daily a need for geophysical applications in karst regions. In his dealings with property owners and sinkholes he saw first hand the destruction caused by sinkholes and the financial toll it takes on the property owners. Geophysical technology was not affordable to the average homeowner so Forir set out to creat a company that could affordably help property owners step by step in dealing with sinkholes. With a 15 year pedigree of success working on all aspects of karst geology, Forir is one of the top karst researchers in Missouri today.

Today, Forir Geo Exploration  offers a number of services such as sinkholes and void detection, groundwater dye tracing and soil analysis.
