Mechanical Properties of Oil Shale and Overlying Strata, Naval Oil Shale Reserve, Anvil Points, Colorado.
Dolinar-DR; Horino-FG; Hooker-VE
Physical property tests were conducted on drill core from three exploratory holes on the naval oil shale reserve near anvil points, Colorado. Data and regression analysis curves are presented. Data obtained above the mahogany zone were used to estimate the potential zone of surface effects from underground mining. Single specimen testing was primarily used to obtain mohr's envelope and subsequent rock properties. The technique is shown to provide satisfactory results for this rock type with a significant reduction of core preparation and testing time.
