(quarry) mapping, petrographic analysis
Explanation:
täkt -> usually "brott", "dagbrott", "tag" (as in "grustag") -> e.g. quarry, open-pit mine, extraction site (really depends on what kind of site the text refers to)

kartering -> "kartläggning" -> e.g. mapping, (evaluation according to link below)

petrografi -> läran om bergarter och deras uppkomst -> petrography


Best I can do. Hope some of it helps you in the right direction! =)
