Hayashi (1973) developed an analytical procedure for the quantitative determination of airborne asbestos. This procedure is based on a standard curve prepared by X-analysis of standard samples using high power X-rays. 8 cm2 in area, can be detected. 24. Societies and publications The Clay Research Group of Japan (CRGJ) was established in 1958.

As in the case of the Green Tuff, the clays, clay minerals and other alteration products associated with the Kuroko and Kuroko-type deposits are very complex in terms of their properties, modes of occurrence, mineral assemblages and origin. The latter undoubtedly involves sedimentation processes, hydrothermal alteration diagenesis, and combinations of these processes. Iwao, Kishimoto and Takahashi (1954) first performed mineralogical and geological studies on the wall rock alteration of the deposits in the Kosaka mine.
