Two main deposits of kaolin and one of fireclay, located in the Lake Victoria Region, Uganda, were investigated to assess their potential in the manufacture of refractory bricks. Raw- and processed sample powders were investigated by means of x-ray diffraction (XRD), thermal analysis (DTA-TG) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). In addition, the chemical composition, particle size distribution, density, and surface area of the powders were determined.
