Characterization of some clays from Nigeria for their use

The need to source for local components of drilling mud in Nigeria has necessitated the assessment of the properties (in natural state and when beneficiated) of clays from three geological units: namely; Asu River Group (Albian), Eze Aku Group (Turonian) and Imo Shale Formation (Paleocene).

Mineralogical and Geochemical Appraisal of Clay Deposits

Three residual clay occurrences in Papalanto, Ifo, and Imoto areas which belong to the sedimentary basin of southwestern Nigeria were investigated to determine their industrial applications. The samples were pulverized, sieved, digested with mineral acids and characterized. Clay mineralogy was determined using X-ray Diffraction (XRD).
