Abstract

This paper discusses the industrial suitability of Borno bentonites as drilling mud. The oxide geochemical investigation indicated that the samples have high montmorillonite content. The qualitative laboratory suitability studies showed that Borno bentonites are suitable for drilling mud production. Bentonitic clays occur in Dikwa, Ngala, New Marte, Mongonu and Mafa areas of Borno State, Nigeria.
