In this study, the measurements of magnetic susceptibility are taken on the clay samples at the laboratory and the results were correlated with oxide element ratios. The clay samples were collected from 21 different sites of Turkey. The chemical analyses were done using the XRF analysis equipment. High correlation coefficient between magnetic susceptibility measurements and some element ratios are observed. Especially FeOt, SiO2 and Al2O3 gave very good correlation coefficient; that are 0.76, 0.81 and 0.61 respectively. Good correlation between magnetic susceptibility and pH values which is 0.70 is also obtained. Data of MS and its frequency dependence are also presented, and their relation with the chemical analyses results is discussed.
