..., additional samples of the Kupferschiefer were collected throughout this basin and studied with respect to clay mineralogy and K-Ar age. Significant differences in the crystallinity, polytypism, and K-Ar ages of illite were noted between samples within, or close to, the mining district at the fore-Sudetic...
