Dewatering a sample of Dolomite

Sample - 26°24’28.6” S 27°22’20.0” was extracted from Carletonville (Gauteng). Its strata show the process of human alteration of the landscape. More specifically, the glass box contains the layers of compacted mineral compounds - illustrating how this area of study has undergone a process of dewatering of the Dolomite’s stone– A sedimentary carbonate rock that contains a high percentage of the mineral dolomite, largely diffuse in the south Gauteng – and the results of the mechanism of ‘dewatering’ used to dry the extraction pit before starting mining operations.
