METHODOLOGY OF THE OKLAHOMA MATERIALS INVENTORY RESEARCH PROJECT

THE KNOWN SUPPLY OF QUALITY AGGREGATES IN OKLAHOMA IS VERY LIMITED AND IS RAPIDLY BECOMING EXHAUSTED IN MANY LOCALITIES . THIS PAPER DESCRIBES THE METHODOLOGY USED TO LOCATE NEW SOURCES OF MATERIALS AND TO DETERMINE THE QUANTITY OF MATERIALS AVAILABLE FROM PREVIOUSLY KNOWN SOURCES AND FROM POTENTIAL SOURCES LOCATED DURING THE INVENTORY PROJECT. BASIC STEPS OF THE INVENTORY STUDIES INCLUDE: /1/ LIBRARY STUDY /THE ASSEMBLING OF EXISTING RECORDS OF PREVIOUSLY LOCATED MATERIAL SOURCES/, /2/ PROCESS OF EXISTING DATA /THE LISTING AND PUBLISHING OF PREVIOUSLY LOCATED POTENTIAL MATERIAL SOURCES/, /3/ FIELD DATA AND SAMPLING /INCLUDING FAMILIARIZATION COURSES, PRELIMINARY FIELD INVESTIGATIONS AND ESTABLISHING OF PROCEDURES AND SCHEDULES/, /4/ LABORATORY TESTING AND ANALYSIS OF MATERIALS, AND /5/ CONSOLIDATION OF DATA AND FINAL REPORT. APPROXIMATELY ONE- THIRD OF THE STATE HAS BEEN SURVEYED SINCE THE PROJECT WAS INITIATED IN 1958, AND PRELIMINARY RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE RESEARCH PROJECT HAS ALREADY INCREASED CONSIDERABLY OKLAHOMAS KNOWN SOURCES OF QUALITY AGGREGATES FOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION. /AUTHOR/
