Example text

An aggregate that is readily susceptible to stripping action is not suitable for the production of road asphalt. 1 Types Moreover, in order to produce quality asphalt roadways, the binder and the aggregate should be of high quality. Just as any tar-like residue does not produce quality asphalt concrete, use of any geological mineral does not serve the purpose of producing a high-quality pavement. The aggregate should have the desired properties which typically include a single aggregate or a mix of aggregates from the following types: the aggregates should be clean, hard, sound, and durable, with a majority of crushed particles.

Smaller deposits occur commonly where Tertiary marine sediments outcrop on the surface; an example is the tar pits at Rancho La Brea in Los Angeles (brea and tar have been used synonymously with bitumen) (Abraham, 1945; Traxler, 1961; Barth, 1962; Hoiberg, 1964). The island of Trinidad lies off the north coast of South America, between 10° and 11° latitude and 61° and 62° longitude. It is bounded on the north by the Caribbean Sea, on the east by the Atlantic, on the south by a narrow channel, into which flows the waters of the northern and most westerly mouths of the Orinoco, and on the west by the Gulf of Paria, the two latter bodies of water separating it from the mainland of Venezuela.
