Is ASR Expansion Linearly Related to Amount of Expansive Material?

We want to buy a jig to float out some of the opaline shale in our sand source. The shale is reactive and we need to reduce the expansion when the sand is tested by either ASTM C 1260, "Standard Test Method for Potential Alkali Reactivity of Aggregate," or C 1293, "Standard Test Method for Concrete Aggregates by Determination of Length Change of Concrete Due to Alkali-Silica Reaction." Is there any data to show how much you would reduce expansion if you reduced the percentage of reactive material in the sand from say 3% to 1.5%? More
