Geological analysis of aggregates processing

Mining Engineering, 2015, Vol. 67, No. 2, pp. 15-15
Winn, Rusty


PREVIEW:

R.E. Janes Gravel Co. is an aggregates producer in the panhandle area of Texas. Its Wood Pit is located along a paleo-channel of the Ogallala formation (locally known as the Slaton Channel) approximately 48.3 km (30 miles) southeast of Lubbock, TX. In an attempt to beneficiate the 25.4-mm (1-in.) concrete aggregate product, a log washer was installed in the processing line to liberate and remove fines (clay) from the finished product. The introduction of this extra cleaning step increased fines in the finished product, exacerbating the original problem. Several other processing options were investigated before a geological analysis was undertaken to try and define the lithology of the formation and formation characteristics in an attempt to alleviate this problem.
