This investigation on Allahabad sand was referred to the National Metallurgical Laboratory by M/s. Mukand Iron & Steel Works Ltd., Bombay to determine its suitability for moulding purposes in their steel foundry. Place and mode of occurrence of Allahabad sand: Allahabad sand is obtained from deposits lying on the outskirts of the Vindhyan mountain range, south-west of Allahabad. The quarries are situated at a distance of about 3 to 6 miles from Shankergarh station on Central Railway. The deposits belong to the upper Vindhyan System and are of fluviatile or estuarine origin. They occur in regular thick layers with little overburden. The quarried sand is in the form of lumps, which are sorted, powdered and screened to required mesh.
