AbstractThe paper describes the mineralogical composition of some samples of Leda clay. The clay is a predominantly marine deposit of post-glacial age which accumulated in an arm of the ocean existing from 12,000 to 8,000 B.P., known as the Champlain Sea. Analyses of five clay samples were made by examination on the petrographic microscope, by x-ray diffraction and by differential thermal analysis; chemical analyses were also made.
