The Units

The units are also verified that understand the Mountain range of the Currency and Mountain range of the Serrinhas in the portion west of the city. Units of the New Group Rasp, which possesss mineradora activity, enclose great part of Itabirito and are next to the urban area. The geology of the city of Itabirito is composed for different units. How if it sees in the map, the excellent characteristics of these areas consist of the PICTURE 2.Quadro 2?

Difficult compacting. Average cohesion.

Permeability low. Fast superficia draining. Generally poor stability for foundations, being able to suffer expansion-contraction with the variation from the humidity. Poor, controlled slope stability for the attitude of the foliao, breakings and degree of intemperismo. Formation Latch of the argillaceous FunilFilitos dolomticos and, and marble.

Easy compacting the moderately difficult. Cohesion low the average. Average Erodibilidade. Permeability low. Fast superficial draining the moderate one. Stability stops foundations poor the moderate one, being able sofrerexpanso-contraction with the humidity variation. Rotten slope stability the good one. Ferruginoso CercadinhoQuartzito formation with filito intercalations, dolomito more rare. Very difficult compacting. Cohesion low the average. Average Erodibilidade. Permeability low the high one. Moderate superficial draining the slow one. Moderate stability for foundations the good one. Poor slope stability, which had to the intense fraturamento of the rocks. (It continues) Picture 2?

Cohesion low the high one depending on the presence of hematite, quartz and degree of alteration. Erodibilidade low the average. High permeability. Moderate superficial draining the slow one.
