For soil to be used for any structural purpose or construction, it must be compacted in order to ensure stability, unnecessary settlement. Also, for long-lasting and increment in shear strength of the soil materials. The soil samples used in this study were from Eziama Obaire burrow pit, Umudi burrow pit and Ikwerrede burrow pits. Compaction test was done using, modified proctor equipment ie, rammers of 2.5kg and 4.5kg, standard mould etc. This was done by dividing the moist sample into five equal layers. Each, receiving 25 blows from the rammer of which, the maximum dry densities (MDD) ranged and, their corresponding optimum moisture contents (OMC) determined from the graphs plotted. Also, particle size distributions, Atterberg limits (Liquid Limit and Plastic Limit) were also conducted on each of the samples. Then enhanced to classify soil samples from these different burrow pits.   ...
