Basic understanding of geology, geological processes, rock types, and their applicability or suitability for quarrying.
Many product technical issues encountered by quarry operators can be traced back to source rock properties and the selection of suitable raw material(s). Having a basic understanding of geology, geologic processes, and rock types allows a quarry operator to extract the most from their reserve on-site; determine potential future site suitability; comply with the relevant specifications regarding product quality; identify and manage geotechnical issues; and limit future product technical claims or issues.
