ENGINEERING-GEOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF GRAVEL DEPOSITS

A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO THE USE OF GEOPHYSICAL EXPLORATION IN PROSPECTING FOR GRAVEL DEPOSITS AND TO THEIR SUBSEQUENT EVALUATION IS SUGGESTED IN THIS PAPER. COMBINED APPLICATION OF GEOLOGICAL METHODS AND EARTH RESISTIVITY MEASUREMENTS IS EXEMPLIFIED BY A SURVEY OF A GRAVEL DEPOSIT IN NORTH-EAST ZEALAND, DENMARK. THIS SURVEY ILLUSTRATED BY TWO RESISTIVITY MAPS, THREE EXAMPLES OF DEPTH PROBINGS, AND AN OUTLINE MAP SHOWING RESULTS OF EXCAVATIONS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT PETROGRAPHIC LABORATORY ANALYSES OF RANDOM SAMPLES FROM DEPOSITS OF AGGREGATE MATERIALS MAY PROVE TO BE OF LIMITED VALUE IF THEY ARE NOT SUPPLEMENTED WITH CAREFUL FIELD STUDIES AND MAPPING OF THE VARIATIONS IN LITHOLOGY, IN PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION ETC. /AUTHOR/
