Abstract

The Camba Formation (Tmcv) of Tertiary age is spread over the southern part of South Sulawesi, especially in Gowa and Maros Regencies. The Camba Formation, which consists of igneous rocks from the ancient Camba volcano, has different mineral characteristics. Analysis of mineral characteristics using the X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) method. Mineral content found in Camba Pharmaceutical igneous rocks are: Diopside (MgCaSi2O6), Enstatite (MgSiO3), Pegionite ((Ca,Mg,Fe)(Mg,Fe)Si2O6), Albite (NaAlSi3O8), Bytownite ((Ca,Na) [Al(Al,Si)Si2O8]), Anorthite (CaAl2Si2O8), Magnetite (Fe3O4), and Periclase (MgO). The most dominant minerals are Pegionite and Albite, while the least minerals are Magnetite and Periclase. This research will provide additional information for the local government, mining entrepreneurs, and the Gowa district community.
