This paper examines selection processes for application to naturally occurring basecourse gravel used on sealed roads. A short review of the development of these processes is presented, in which improvements in the technical definition of relevant engineering properties are identified. Four case studies are discussed. They are taken from examples where, in the author's experience, properties of basecourse gravel have been an issue. These case studies emphasise that advances in the utilisation of naturally occurring gravel depend upon both improved use of regional knowledge, and recognition of and allowance for those properties that detract from a material's workability.
