In this study, the investigating of sawability and abrasivity of Khalkhal and Azarshahr travertine were carried out in order to the planning of a new plant. To achieve the goal, rock samples were collected from the mines and some mineralogical, physical and mechanical properties of rocks were determined in the laboratory. The sawability was determined by using some empirical methods based on Schmidt hammer value, Tensile Strength, Uniaxial Compressive Strength and P-wave velocity and abrasivity of rocks were investigated using thin section and Schimazek's abrasivity index. The results show that Khalkhal and Azarshahr travertines have very low abrasivity. The average estimated production rates were 15.89 m2/h and 16.32 m2/h, respectively.
