A: If it is just mud, dirt and water, then no. If it is clay and water, then yes.
A: The holes in this shovel are about 7/16" in diameter. (see photo). So the dirt clumps (or sand) need to be smaller then that and the rocks bigger than that. I'm not positive but I believe this shovel was designed for slurries or mud where the excess water can drain through the shovel head while picking up the larger solid pieces.
