The density varies greatly depending on whether it is dry or wet, and organic-rich topsoil vs sand and clay. If dry, perhaps 1.0 - 1.6 t/m³, if wet, 1.6 - 2.0 t/m³.

If you need any precision, you probably need to weigh a sample of known volume. For rough estimate, pick somewhere in the ranges above, as appropriate, and divide the number of metric tons by that density to get cubic meters.

Re: converting tonne to cubic meters

Dry compacted in-situ clay will vary dependant on mineral composition, however, generally it is about 1750 lbs per cubic yard. Converting cubic yards @ (1750lbs/cyd) X 1.30795 = 2,414 lbs per cubic metre clay.
