Abstract/Summary

This report describes the mineralogical characterisation and processing of several industrial minerals collected by Dr DJ Morgan in October 1991 during a visit to Uganda (Visit report WG/91/31R). The industrial minerals included raw materials (see Table 1) from African Ceramics Ltd (Mutaka kaolin, feldspar and ball clay) and samples collected by the Geological Survey and Mines Department Uganda (the remaining kaolin, talc and diatomite). The aim of this study was to assess their quality for various applications, especially ceramic manufacture. This work was carried out as part of the DDA/BGS project "Minerals for Development".
