There are a variety of Slate reserves found in many countries around the world. The rocks in the earth’s crust continuously undergo changes in their composition which leads to formation of other rocks. Each rock has a unique formation process. Formation of Slate is explained below:
- Mud buried beneath the earth was subjected to intense heat & pressure and changed to clay, then shale and finally slate .
