Subsidence of the coast was followed by a process of shore straightening, which caused the formation of along shore sand bars extending from headland to headland. Shore currents moved sands and breakers carried the lower specific gravity minerals into the deep water on the landward side of the bar.

Heavy mineral sands ore deposits

Heavy mineral sands are a class of ore deposit which is an important source of zirconium, titanium, thorium, tungsten, rareearth elements, the industrial minerals diamond, sapphire, garnet, and occasionally precious metals or gemstones.. Heavy mineral sands are placer deposits formed most usually in beach environments by concentration due to the specific gravity of the mineral grains.

Heavy mineral analysis

Heavy mineral analysis

Heavy minerals (minerals with a density greater than 2.89 g/cm 3) have highly variable stabilities with respect to transport/weathering but the combined effects of chemical weathering, transport and diagenesis (and overall maturity) tend to decrease their percentage in the whole rock.Therefore, the average heavy mineral yield in sandstones is about 1% but can be a lot lower in old/recycled

Distribution of heavy minerals in SpringerLink

The sectors nearer to the river mouth contain high concentration of high specific gravity heavy minerals (ilmenite and magnetite) than sectors away from the river mouth. The redistribution of heavy minerals is controlled by creek dynamics, longshore currents, size and specific gravity of the heavy minerals.

The heavy minerals of the Florida region are very sparse in the areas of Pleistocene sands back from the coast, but occur in noteworthy amounts on the beaches now bordering the shore and in the sand dunes along the coast, and some of these form commercial deposits. On the beaches, wave action has locally concentrated the heavy minerals into

Module 1 What Placer Deposits Are and How they Form

What Placer Deposits Are and How They Form. Placer deposits are natural accumulations of heavy minerals in sediments such as stream or beach sand and river gravel. Placer deposits form by a combination of processes that (1) separate heavy minerals from their source rocks, (2) transport them as sediment, and (3) concentrate them as they are

Beach sands contain the most important accumulations of these minerals; wave action deposits sand on the beach, and the heavy minerals are concentrated when backwash carries some of the lighter minerals such as quartz back into the sea. Onshore winds which preferentially blow lighter grains inland can lead to higher concentrations of heavy
