Abstract


MINERALOGY OF THE CLAYS FROM THE OLKUSZ MINE

Summary

Clays that occur in the ore-bearing dolomites of the Olkusz mine and that accompany brunckite veins (Fig. 1) have a mineral composition close to that of the vitriol clays of the Bytom trough. They contain illite, montmorillonite, kaolinite, quartz, scarce dolomite, calcite, gypsum, brunckite, galena, and pyrite, and identifiable organic remnants (Pls. I and II). The present studies revealed that the clay sediments overlying the Gogolin limestones are not confined to the Bytom trough only, but have a wider extent.
