# Depletion Rate Oxford Quarries purchased 45 acres of land for \$185,000. The land contained stone that Oxford will remove from the ground, finish, and then sell as facing material for buildings. Oxford spent \$435,000 preparing the quarry for operation. Oxford estimates that the quarry contains 55,000 tons of usable stone and that it will require 6 years to remove all the usable stone once quarrying begins. Upon completion of quarrying, Oxford estimates that the land will have a residual value of \$11,150. During 2019, Oxford extracted 8,500 tons of stone. Required: 1. Compute the depletion rate per ton. 2. Prepare the journal entry to record the extraction of the stone.
