Abstract

Part of the 2006 industrial minerals review. U.S. kaolin production was an estimated 7.74 Mt in 2006, with 7.1 Mt produced by Georgia. Imports increased from 262 kt in 2005 to about 303 kt in 2006, whereas exports decreased from 3.58 Mt in 2005 to 3.54 Mt in 2006. Inexpensive Brazilian imports and a lackluster domestic paper market are expected to cause a slight reduction in kaolin sales to the U.S. paper industry.
