Differential thermal analysis
and mineralogical composition of some Zambian clays, by J.P. Guha,
Zambia Journal of Science and Technology, Vol.2, no.2, April 977, Pg. 1-5.
Clays from four local deposits, namely, Mkushi River china clay, Masuku
pegmatite, Loshi and Solwezi ball clays were subjected to differential thermal
analysis (DTA) to identify the nature and type of various minerals present in
them. The clays are predominantly of the kaolinite-type with some quartz, mica,
iron and titanium oxides present as impurities. The DTA results were used in
conjunction with the chemical analysis to estimate the mineralogical composition
of the clays.
