Where is Kaolin being mined in the world?

Kaolin is a compound of the modelling paste I am using in my sculptures. I wanted to know more about it.

 

kaolin, also called china clay, is a soft white clay that is an essential ingredient in the manufacture of china and porcelain and is widely used in the making of paper, rubber, paint, and many other products. Kaolin is named after the hill in China (Kao-ling) from which it was mined for centuries.

 

They are three producers in the world, France, China and USA.

 

Kaolin is mostly mined in Washington County in the center of Georgia, Just south from Atlanta, GA. The soft white rock is present in the “fall line” that runs diagonally across Georgia and divides the hilly piedmont region from the flatter coastal plain.
