Powder cement

A. I got about a thousand pounds of dry cement/concrete powder. Was wondering how I could find out what type it is and also what ratio to mix with sand and gravel. By weight or shovel scoops.

B. If the cement isn't in bags that say what type it is then you would have to take a sample of the cement to a cement testing lab. They could tell you what type it is and then you could go to concrete mixing ratios to figure out how to mix the cement with water and gravel.
