Maifala, Bontle & Nadiye-Tabbiruka, M.S.

Abstract

Mineralogical studies were carried out on clayey material found near the water dam in Gaborone city, in Botswana, in order to deduce its chemical composition. Samples of the material were subjected to chemical elemental, thermal and cation exchange capacity analyses. Traces of Kaolinite were found together with quartz and microcline. The chemical formula was found to be FeSiAl6O10(OH)6.
