Geochemical, Mineralogical and Ceramic Properties of Missouri Flint Clays.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :3 pages
Kaolinite deposits ("flint clays") are the basis for a major ceramic industry in Missouri. The clays vary in their quality with regard to their ceramic properties. This study investigates the range of geochemical and mineralogical compositions of sample profiles in several deposits. These properties will then be used to explain variations in the ceramic behavior of the clay. This study is only partially completed.
