    780 m x 0.15 m = 117 m "banked". The dirt when dug out will be loosened up and the stone will be delivered loose so expect an additional 10-15% volume loose. The density of dirt is HIGHLY variable depending on its composition and moisture content; I hesitate to guess the value. You may wish to weigh a sample of known volume. The stone is probably around 1.5 - 1.6 t/m if dry, approaching 2 t/m wet.
