The distribution features of clay minerals in the Quaternary sediments are considered in the canyon–deepwater cone sedimentary system of the Shakhe River in the Black Sea. The ratio of illite, chlorite, smectite, and kaolinite that occurs along the area and section is based on the transfer of sedimentary material by turbidity flows through the canyon with the formation of a unified mineralogical province.
