The expansion of the shale could be attributed to the oxidation of the pyrite which produced sulfuric acid. The sulfuric acid in turn reacted with the calcium carbonate (calcite) in the shale partings producing the mineral gypsum. Since gypsum has approximately twice the molar volume of calcite the result is an expansion or swelling of the
