    Abstract

    Mineralogical studies of sedimentary rocks or sedimentary deposits are often required for engineering geological projects. X-ray diffraction analytical techniques are usually employed for this purpose but these methods are often complex and involved. Several different X-ray diffraction methods are described and a single suitable procedure is chosen and described in detail. The chosen method includes analysis of both clay and non-clay minerals and qualitative and quantitative interpretation.
