Two samples of China clay received from Darugiri area of East Garo Hills, Meghalaya were studied to identify their mineralogical characteristics. The studies conducted on the crude as well as washed fractions of both the clays included physical, chemical, thermochemical, petrographical, bec, PCE and XRD analysis. Results indicated that clay No. 1 in its crude form contained a good amount of free quartz whereas clay No. 2 as such was purer in form so far as free quartz was concerned. Both the clays were predominantly kaolinitic in nature.
