PROSPECTING QUATERNARY AND TERTIARY MINERAL RAW MATERIALS IN THE SIEDLCE HIGHLAND AREA

Summary
Mineral deposits of the area of Siedlce Highland situated nearby Warsaw are yet rather poorly known. Ceramics raw materials and aggregates of use in building industry, and carbonate rocks are known to occur in this area. The present paper deals with day raw materials (varve clays, boulder clays, and mottled Pliocene clays) and Quaternary siliceous-aggregate raw materials (dune sands, fluvioglacial sands, sands with gravels, and gravels, end-moraine zone sands with gravels and gravels) as well as with Tertiary sand and .gravel deposits. The largest deposits of raw clay materials for the ceramic industry are to be expected along rivers and depressions, where stagnant-lake clays and silts are often found, and over the areas of glacitectonic uplift, wherefrom thick series of mottled clays are reported. Gravel and aggregate deposits may probably be found in hills built of ooze deposits, which are scattered in the vicinities of Okniny, Jeruzal, Miedzna and Telaki villages, and in end-moraines of the Mazovian-Podlasie stage, occurring in the areas of Domanice, Jastrzębie, and Próchenki villages, and of the North-Mazovian stage, occurring in the Treblinka area.
