    Ernst, W., in a communication to Eagar (July 6, 1964), has pointed out that a colouring agent used in the microchemical determination of boron at Krefeld during this time was later found itself to contain traces of boron.

    In ten samples rough checks on the clay mineral content by Dr. J. Zussman revealed illite and kaolinite, with illite usually slightly the more abundant mineral. Montmorillonite was not seen, but might have been present in small amount.
