Optimized extraction of dimension stone blocks SpringerLink

Nov 30, 2010· The profitable production of dimension stone mainly depends on the extractable block size. The regularity and volume of the blocks are of critical importance, and are controlled by the three-dimensional pattern of the discontinuity system. Therefore, optimization of block size has to be the aim when quarrying for natural stone. This is mainly connected to the quantification of joints and

Dec 05, 2015· It is suggested to enhance output of marketable dimension stone in quarries with complex inclined and flat-lying fracture networks by minimizing in-process loss as well as by optimizing cutting bench height in order to benefit from higher production rate and lower cutting cost. The procedure has been developed for calculating rational parameters of a combination method of high

Production of Natural Stone Norges Geologiske Undersøkelse

Feb 12, 2015· Natural stone must be carefully quarried and preferably removed as large blocks. The first step is to take down the "primary block", which is a large dimensioned chunk of rock loosened from the quarry wall. This is most often achieved by drilling, blasting or/or sawing. A primary block can vary in size depending on the stone type, and up to 1000 cubic metres, 2700 tons!

Apr 01, 2002· The use of marble as a dimension stone has in recent times gained wide acceptance. Dimension stone production involves the separation of the block from the massif in a regular shape and desired dimensions free of any fracture and flaw as far as possible (Rzhevsky, 1985). However, most marble deposits in Nigeria are suitable for dimension stone.
