Description: Abstract: Wavellite, crandallite, and millisite are completely dissolved by boiling samples for 20 minutes with 1+1 hydrochloric acid; only 1 percent of the aluminum present in kaolinite is dissolved. This method of decomposition can therefore be used for differentiating the aluminum present in wavellite, crandallite, and millisite form that in kaolinite in samples from the aluminum phosphate zone. This method should prove valuable in prospecting and benefication studies.
