The mineral composition of the Visean clay rocks were researched as a shielding rocks of oil reservoirs in Tournaisian stage. It was shown that the shielding clay rocks aren't absolutely impenetrable. They can pass water fluids through the rocks under certain conditions. There is a transformation of clay minerals in clay rocks on the ways of fluid migrations. Initial minerals of kaolinite and mica collapse and are transformed to mixed layer phases of illite-divermiculite-smectite. It is possible to assume transformations of clay minerals take place with participation of the microbe communities, considering that the similar occurs in soil forming processes.
