The nature of vermiculite in Adirondack soils and till



The nature of vermiculite in Adirondack soils and till



Clays and Clay Minerals 34(5): 549-556



The clay and bulk mineralogy of soil and till from 26 Adirondack watersheds was studied. The materials consist typically of quartz, K-feldspar, plagioclase, mica, vermiculite, and kaolinite. Talc, smectite, halloysite, and hornblende are present in some samples. The clay fraction of the soils is composed predominantly of vermiculite, likely derived from the transformation of a mica precursor, and kaolinite.
