Abstract

The diffractogram analysis of the Kurnool carbonates showed 3.34Ao, 3.04Ao and 2.84Ao strongest lines representing calcite mineral, 4.24Ao, 3.35Ao, and 2.45Ao strongest lines representing quartz mineral and 3.60Ao strongest line representing mineral dolomite. The calcite peaks were strong and prominent and well resolved, some of them showed secondary peaks indicating that they are magnesian calcite with stoichiometric proportions of magnesium and calcium. The peaks represented by the mineral dolomite is very mild and small. Thus the X-ray diffractogram analysis revealed that the carbonate rocks of Kurnool Group contain calcite, dolomite and quartz as dominant mineral composition.
