Abstract
    The dredging practices are a major challenge for the development and maintenance of port activities. Millions of cubic meters are extracted regularly from Algerian ports, it is necessary to value them. This study focuses on the development of marine sediments from the port of Bethioua for making bricks. A physicochemical, mineralogical and fine microscopic characterization was done with great care for these marine sediments and for the slip brick at several laboratories in our university (USTO-MB). The physicochemical, mineralogical and microscopic characterization of materials shows a similarity between these sediments. They can be a very useful source of local raw materials, particularly for the building sector such as bricks.
