A geotechnical investigation was performed to determine the physical properties (classification) and engineering properties of the overburden material from a proposed oil shale mining site in Montgomery County (Means Project). Three overburden materials were received in sealed meal drums and were labeled Nancy Member, Borden Formation; Clay City Bed, Farmers Member, Borden Formation; and Henley bed, Farmers Member, Borden Formation. Hereafter, they will be referred to as the Nancy, Clay City and Henley, respectively. the various types of geotechnical laboratory tests performed on these materials are listed in Table 1.
