Clay Mineral Deposits in Nigeria with their Locations and

Clay Mining in Nigeria. Even though clay can be commercially mined in West African countries like Nigeria by companies through a clay pit, it is mainly dug locally from its sources by Nigerians. This is because its deposits are eventually scattered across various areas and don't require any special instrument for detecting it except for the mining companies which might require a larger deposit ...
