The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 70

(13) Clay and Sands

(13) Clay and Sands.

Clays available both for building and pottery are so widely distributed that it is unnecessary to mention localities, and the same remark may be applied to fireclays, which, at Brunnerton, near Greyraouth, are manufactured by the Brunner Coal Company into most excellent bricks, retorts, etc. Kaolin is found in Stewart Island, at the Manuherikia Plains and Arrow (Otago), at Mount Somers in Canterbury, and at Whau (Auckland). Sands of excellent quality are very abundant, and in some cases they are sufficiently pure for glass-making.
