By Haydn H. Murray

This publication on utilized Clay Mineralogy is entire. It covers the constitution, composition, and actual and chemical houses of kaolinite, halloysite, ball clays; bentonites together with sodium montmorillonite, calcium montmorillonite, and hectorite; and palygorskite and sepiolite. there's additionally a quick bankruptcy on universal clays that are used for making structural clay items and light-weight mixture. the site and geology of the main clay deposits which are advertised all over the world and locally comprise kaolins from the us, Southwest England, Brazil, and the Czech Republic besides halloysite from New Zealand and ball clays from the USA, England, Germany, and Ukraine. Bentonites from the U.S. and Europe are integrated besides palygorskite and sepiolite from the united states, China, Senegal, and Spain. The mining and processing of many of the clays are defined. vast discussions of the various purposes of the clays are integrated. The appendices hide the $64000 laboratory exams which are used to spot and overview a number of the kinds of clay. Many figures are integrated masking electron micrographs, processing stream sheets, stratigraphy, and site maps. * offers the constitution and composition of clay minerals, in addition to their phyisical and chemical houses * Discusses pplications for Kaolin, Bentonite, Palygorskite and Sepiolite * comprises appendixes of laboratory assessments and strategies, in addition to a attempt for universal clays

The age of most of the deposits is Middle Eocene although a few are Lower Eocene (Olive and Finch, 1969). Most deposits 46 Applied Clay Mineralogy Fig. 35.

The thickness of the deposits ranges from 2 to 10 m (McCuiston, 1995). Fig. 36 is a scanning electron micrograph of a Tennessee ball clay, which shows a typical swirl texture characteristic of scanning electron micrographs of ball clay.
