KAOLIN GEOLOGY IN MIDDLE GEORGIA

THE FALL LINE

The origin of kaolin can be traced to the Cretaceous geologic period, about 70 million years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth and much of the southern half of Georgia was covered by a great sea. The climate was more tropical than now. The seacoast stretched across Georgia from Columbus to Macon to Augusta along a line that we now call the "Fall Line" where the Piedmont gives way to the coastal plains.
