Full Text(PDF, )  PP.851-857  
Gideon Majiyebo Adogbo, Isa Mohammed
Drilling mud, Kankara kaolin clay, Density, Viscosity
Kaolin Clay minerals was used as ingredient for drilling mud formulation. Beneficiated Kankara Kaolin clay, barite, starch were used in the preparation of various drilling mud mixtures. Viscosity measurement were taken within 4.3s-1 and 34.1s-1 shear rate
