  • ISSN : 1021-2019



The durability and general suitability of quartzite aggregate derived from the Natal Group in engineering applications is evaluated. Problems of variability are identified as being directly related to the geology and are explained in terms of the depositional environment and diagenetic development of the rock.

Die duursaamheid en algemene geskiktheid van Natal-groep-kwartsiettoeslag word vir ingenieurstoepassings geevalueer. Probleme van veranderlikheid word geidentifiseer as direk aan die geologie verwant en word in terme van die afsettingsomgewing en diagenetiese ontwikkeling van die rots verduidelik.
