Heavy-Mineral Sand Resources in the Southeastern U.S.

The Concord heavy-mineral-sands mine of Iluka Resources in south-central Virginia.The mine excavates sand-silt deposits that contain about 4 percent heavy minerals, which were deposited along a shoreline that existed here between 3.5 and 3.0 million years ago.

Heavy Mineral an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Heavy minerals like ilmenite, sillimanite, garnet, zircon, rutile, monazite, magnetite, titanium, chromite, cassiterite, diamond, gold, and platinum-palladium have a tendency to form onshore beach and offshore placer/ocean floor deposits. Prominent deposits occurring along the coastline of countries like India (Fig. 5.21), Indonesia, Malaysia, and Australia bordering the Indian Ocean are the

Heavy Minerals Department for Energy and Mining

In September 2000, the company announced the results of a first-stage feasibility study based on a resource of 65.6 Mt containing 3.3% heavy minerals using a 1.32% heavy mineral cutoff. This includes a mineral inventory, adjusted for likely mining losses and dilution, of 32.8 Mt at 4.2% heavy minerals.

Heavy Minerals

Heavy Minerals are diagnostic indicators of sandstone provenance, and provide crucial information on sediment transport pathways, sand body distribution and palaeogeography. Heavy minerals are also useful guides to the extent of burial diagenesis of reservoir sandstones. Stratigraphic changes in heavy mineral assemblages enable the construction of a heavy mineral correlation framework.
