This report is in response to the request to verify that materials used at Possum Grape Sand and Gravel, Inc. of Possum Grape, Arkansas, meet the appropriate ASTM, and MoDOT specifications. All materials were sampled by personnel from the Possum Grape operation and delivered to the laboratory, and it is assumed that the specifications in ASTM D75 Standard Methods of Aggregate Sampling were followed. The gravel materials were tested for specific gravity, absorption, dry-rodded unit weight, total moisture content, and Los Angeles Abrasion. The concrete sand was tested for specific gravity, absorption, total moisture content, surface moisture (per ASTM C 70 and ASTM C 128), and organic impurities. It is very important to tightly manage each of these properties because minor changes in properties cause serious differences in aggregate behavior. This request was made by Rocky Clay, President of Possum Grape Sand and Gravel, Inc.,
