Abstract

SUSTAINABLE STONE EXTRACTION FOR USING AS CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL AND SUITABILITY PROPERTIES: CASE STUDY OF KOTRE QUARRY OF NEPAL

Er. Buddhi Raj Joshi and Dr. Madhav Prasad Koirala*

ABSTRACT

All Level of government is yet to formulate legal practice of sustainable extraction and uses of stone resources in only a few parts of the Nepal, and there are few or no guidelines for the extraction and uses of natural resources to follow. Nevertheless, the Stone industry can independently utilize sustainable management techniques to achieve the goals of meeting their needs for reserves without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This study includes the existing data and literature with laboratory testing for the suitability of stone and stone byproducts for different infrastructure projects. The different quarry site of Nepal has been identified by Department of Mines and Geology and Road Construction and Maintenance Materials Study (RCMMS), Department of Road. For this, Kotre quarry site is selected which is located at the boundary of Kaski and Tanahun district. As per the estimated area of Kotre quarry is 921887.119 square meter. It is found that the quarry is recharged due to the transportation of aggregate from Himalayan zone by flood in the monsoon season. The properties of aggregate are tested for the quality of the aggregate and required properties is fulfilling by this quarry.
