Extraction of Aggregates Process - CEMEX USA - .

Marine aggregates play an important role in replenishing beaches and protecting coastlines from erosion. Satellite navigation may be used to position vessels precisely within licensed dredging areas. Vessels trail a pipe along the marine floor at speeds approaching 1.5 knots and use powerful suction pumps to draw sand and gravel into the cargo hold.

BfN: Sand and gravel extraction

There are two main methods of extracting sand and gravel: In stationary extraction, an anchored cutter suction dredger excavates huge pits in the sea floor with depths of normally about 10 m and diameters of between 10 and 50 m. In the second method, a trailing suction hopper dredger removes sediment from the surface of the sea floor.
