Fine grained marine sediments from near the Greenlandic towns of Ilulissat, Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut were assessed as raw materials for local production of building bricks. The assessment included both analysis of the sediment characteristics and physical properties of miniature test brick pellets. The sediment samples were, in general, very similar in respect to the investigated properties and compared well with brick clays from other parts of the world. The variable chloride content observed in two of the sediments could be a concern and should be investigated further.
