Abstract : Laboratory studies of clay mineral samples have been made from two mud volcanoes in the island of Trinidad; Moruga Bouffe and Palo Seco. The mineral content and physical properties have been compared with clay samples from the Lower Cruse and Nariva Formations through which the throats of the mud volcanoes are believed to have penetrated.
