Abstract A variety of industrial minerals, such as kaolinite, feldspars, and etc., have been used as solid raw materials in the geopolymerization technology. The illite-containing raw material in this study was obtained by the use of sedimentation method. Clay and dust fractions was subjected to the treatment with NaOH alkaline solution and afterwards treated at different temperatures. Resultsobtained by X-ray diffraction, Scanning electron microscopy, nitrogen adsorption method confirmed the usability of Liepas deposit homogenized gray and red clays for possible realization of geopolymer method.
