Abstract: Semiquantitative X-ray diffraction mineralogical studies show
that deep-sea brown clays from 23 cores and a long core from Deep Sea Drilling
Project Site 39 along the Murray Fracture Zone and in the vicinity of Necker
ridge consist of the minerals quartz, plagioclase, mica, chlorite, kaolinite,
montmorillonite, phillipsite, and goethite, and minor amounts of dolomite,
aragonite, calcite, barite, and augite. According to mineral assemblages, five
suites are recognized-eolian, detrital, authigenic, biogenic, and hydrothermal.
