Step One: Calculate Volume in Yards. The first step to estimating gravel sand or soil is to estimate the volume of material needed. Start by measuring the length width and depth of the area you need to fill in the same unit of measurement. Multiply the length width and height together to find the volume of the space.
The relationships obtained between the discontinuity spacing data recorded in the field and the volume of the produced limestone blocks shown in Figures Figures6 6 7 7 8 8 and and9 9 will serve as a guide to the prospective quarry operators in determination of the block volumes that can would be obtained from a rock mass.
At the quarry:" Development or confirmation of the estimate of volume of remaining material in-place that can be mined and sold in the market" A review of the quality of the material at the site" Estimation of the probable profitability of the operation given the lo ion of the mine the local land use and the environmental
to determine the viability of the quarry. A single drill core has also been logged following drilling conducted in Sept 2014. A standpipe piezometer has been installed into the drill hole and will be read periodically. The rock formation is part of the Dunvegan formation of the upper Cretaceous period.
You can calculate the volume of gravel by multiplying area of gravel path by the desired depth: For e.g. 200 ft 2 * 1 ft = 200 ft 3; Purchase enough landscape rock to cover the area. If the area to be covered is 200 cubic feet for example each bag of rock covers 4 cubic feet so you will need 50 bags of landscape rock to fill the space.
Example: A quarry is planned to be working on a rock of Andesite with an estimated production of about 120000 tonnes per month. What is the estimated requirement of explosives Volume of rock blasted per hole = 193.5/0.6 = 322.5 m3 So S X B = 322.5/15 = 21.5 m2 1.15B x B = 21.5 B = 4.3 m
Mineral Appraisals: What is the Value of a Quarry or Mine? Art Pincomb ASA CPG Mineral commodities are classified as high-value low-volume or low-value high-volume. With current 2016 prices of about $1100/oz. for gold $14.00/oz. for silver and $800/oz. for platinum precious
To make matters even more confusing is the fact that determining yards per ton is anything but an exact science. The weight of crushed stone in pounds per cubic yards and tons per cubic yards are approximate measures that assume all of the same material weighs the same.
4. To determine the equivalent “d” enter the graph at weight at the bottom of the chart. Proceed vertically to the intersection of the line labeled Size of Rock “d” and move horizontally to the right to read “d”. 5. To determine the weight of small rock and sand-gravel determine the volume in cubic feet and multiply by 100 pounds.
Determine the volume of gravel needed for the wall portion of a dry stack stone wall using the formula; length x width x height divided by 3 = volume in cubic feet. A dry stack rock wall uses gravel to fill gaps between the rocks in the wall.
