The properties of coarse aggregates from metamorphic rock in Selangor and Perak are used to explore the quality and performance as construction aggregate towards utilization of earth resource in Malaysia. The roles performed by unbound aggregate bases are defined and this leads to a discussion of the necessary properties required in achieving appropriate standard specification tests. Reference is made to a fundamental understanding of material performance which is then applied to the means available for measuring the relevant properties of aggregates for use in base layers. The paper concludes with a review of areas, which can be selected and recommended to be use as unbound aggregate pavement base.
