Rock & Materials Testing. RESPEC provides clients with advanced and specialized rock testing and research to support the complete characterization of a rock’s physical composition. Our testing also evaluates the mechanical, hydrological, and thermal behavior of the rock to offer clients and engineering analysts with the properties data they need to support mining engineering studies.
analysis and empirical rock mass classification systems such as the Coal Mine Roof Rating (CMRR). INTRODUCTION The point load test (PLT) is an accepted rock mechanics testing procedure used for the calculation of a rock strength index. This index can be used to estimate other rock strength parameters. The focus of this paper is to present the data
Mineral testing helps identify the composition of the earth in a specific region. The information provides data analysis for geological mapping, hydrocarbon exploration, and mineralogy. Mineral testing is also frequently conducted in residential areas to determine the mineral content in the municipal water supply.

Point Load (PL) is a test that aims at characterizing rock materials in terms of strength. It is an index test, meaning that it can be performed relatively quickly and without the necessity of sophisticated equipment to provide important data on the mechanical properties of rocks.
