The performance evaluation of refractory bricks produced from some local clay deposits in Delta State, Nigeria was investigated. Four major sites in Delta State renowned for abundant clay deposits were selected, namely; Oghara, Ekpan, Ubeji and Jeddo. The clay samples were crushed, milled (pulverised) and sieved to produce very fine grains of less than 250 μm particle size distribution for all samples. They were then tested for shrinkage, bulk density, Loss on ignition , cold compression…
