The Gaoling village is well known the world over as the original site of kaolin. In the region around the village there occurs the "Fuliang" granite intrusive mass with different lithologies ranging from medium-grained biotite to medium-grained mu-scovite and medium-grained porphyritic granites and so on. The intrusive mass was locally cut by pegmatites. Regional kaolins are extensively distributed in the region as a result of weathering of the medium-grained muscovite granites and pegmatites.In the past, some workers held that the kaolin minerals were mostly composed of poorly crystallized kaolinites in the Gaoling village: but three varieties of kaolins were collected by us from the region: (1) sandy kaolin; (2) vein-like kaolin and (3) massive kaolin. These samples have been determined by various methods, such as X-ray powder diffraction, DTA, TGA, IE, chemical analysis and kaolinite minerals observed by TEM. It is considered that the kaolinite minerals under study consist chiefly of endellite and halloysite with only a small amount of poorly crystallized kaolinite.
