The XRD spectrum for Talc identified both talc and clinochlore, as well as potentially a small amount of quartz.
It is a white to reddish-brown coarse-grained rock composed of calcite, dolomite, Ti-clinohumite, forsterite, diopside, accessory clinochlore, muscovite, fluorapatite and shining flakes of graphite.
Results of X-ray diffraction analysis of 52 stratified samples collected between 58-18 m indicated a mineralogical composition consisting mostly of quartz, muscovite, albite, clinochlore, calcite, and orthoclase (details in Giudice 2005; Dickinson 2008).
After the analyses, the soil minerals found were: quartz, calcite, sanidine, albite, nontronite, muscovite, montmorillonite, hematite, faujasite, dolomite, microcline, anorthite, anorthoclase, clinochlore and epidote.
The X-ray diffraction pattern (Figure 2b) shows the presence of clinochlore (6.
Origin of Constituting Minerals in Lithofacies of the Hangu Formation Lithofacies-I (laterite / bauxite / kaolinite): The petrographic results show that the principal clay minerals include kaolinite (50-65 (Percent) , boehmite (40-50 (Percent) , gibbsite (upto 30 (Percent) , neoformed clay (chamosite upto15 (Percent) and iron rich clay (glauconite 9-15 (Percent) alongwith nacrite / clinochlore (upto 85 (Percent) at Kalra Wahan) and chlorite (upto 5 (Percent) .
According to the XRD analyses, a Patan clay sample contains mainly muscovite and quartz phases, while a Thimi clay sample contains muscovite, quartz, albite and clinochlore phases.
