A series of samples of residual clay at the Friends Station zinc deposit, Tenn., was collected and analyzed for zinc. Results indicate that residuum containing 0.05 percent Zn and more is the product of weathering of limestone and dolomite containing zinc mineralization. Chemical analysis of residual clays for zinc shows promise as a method of prospecting for zinc in the limestone valleys of the southern Appalachians.
