Additionally, volume mixtures of the medium sand to a fine loam (Table 1) at 39:1, 19:1, and 4:1, to clay-based porous ceramic at 9:1, and to clinoptilolite zeolite charged with ammonium and K at 9:1 were developed.
The author states that "most clinoptilolite is mined with lots of embedded fine clay." Clay is a mineralogical term.
Because of the difficulty of discriminating accurately heulandite from clinoptilolite, we use the term "heulandite" to include both minerals.
in 1985 to develop assets which included the Butcher Boy gold project and the Ash Meadows clinoptilolite (zeolite) mine, both in Nevada.
