The kaolin clay deposit is found in the Quarter AlluviumFormation (Qa) which is located in the Mataraman Subdistrict and aroundBanjar Regency, South Kalimantan Province, with a monoclinic geologicalstructure. The purpose of this study was to identify types of clay mineralsand physical and chemical characteristics. The analytical method used inthis study is the method of analysis of physical properties and chemicalproperties The study area clay has physical characteristics, elastic clay, easy to form with a mixture of sand and cricket such as quartzite andwhite. Based on the results of XRD analysis, the types of clay mineralsfound were Kaolinit, Mica and Quartz, the chemical requirements of theclay of the study area could be used as material for making ceramics and pottery.
Key words: Alluvium / clay / kaolin / banjar regency / ceramic
