Four samples of kaolinite from Central Zambia were collected in April 1990 by D.A. Briggs (Mineralogy and Petrology Report WG/90/15R) in order to characterise them mineralogically and assess their suitability as industrial raw materials, possibly in the manufacture of paper. Other applications such as use in ceramics, as fillers in paint, plastic and rubber, or in agriculture were also to be considered.
