Summary:The mineralogy of Miocene, Pliocene and Quaternary sediments used for brick-making and pottery has been studied. Illite, montmorillonite and chlorite are the dominant clay minerals and are associated with quartz, calcite, dolomite and minor phases; the grain size makes these sediments sandy clay silt to clay silt. Illites are characterized by high octahedral Al and the lMd polytype and are genetically related to paragonites. The smectites are dioctahedral with high Al and b <9 A. The illites and chlorites are considered to be detrital whereas the smectites are produced where chemical weathering prevailed in a basic environment at higher temperatures. [R.A.H.]
