You might consider using a flowable fill, or “Controlled
Low-Strength Material” (CLSM), made by using an admixture. One product
that can be used to make it is the Darafill additive by Grace Concrete Products.
I believe if you use this product or one like it, the company’s
technical support would help with mix design to achieve the desired strength.

Is there a schedule of sand/cement/water mix ratios that
would give a range of strengths of slurry when it sets up? I need a mix
that will be as good or better than 1500 psf bearing soil but can still be
excavated if necessary.
Thanks in advance for any info on mix ratios that
you have used with those limitations.
