Abstract

A sedimentary kaolinitic sand deposit near Maoming, Guangdong Province, China has potential as a paper coating clay. Laboratory tests of bulk samples from two major mines in the Maoming deposit, the Shange mine and the Jintang mine, show that the kaolin is composed essentially of well-crystalline, low Fe and Ti, relatively pure kaolinite. The Shange sample has a very fine particle size, high brightness, low viscosity and low abrasiveness, and therefore is suitable for use as a coating clay. The Jintang sample has the quality to be used as a filler clay and with special beneficiation treatments can be processed into coating quality.
