Heavy mineral potential of offshore ia

 · Those "threshold" values (concentrations of the heavy mineral fraction) are as follows: ilmenite, 450//0; leu- coxene and zircon, 5%; rutile, 2%; and mona- zite, 1%; these values assume an average total heavy mineral (THM) concentration of 4-5%.

"A Procedure for Assessing Heavy Mineral Resources …

Supplies of placer heavy minerals, such as ilmenite, rutile, zircon, and monazite, are anticipated to be in short supply by early in the next century. The depletion of conventional onshore deposits coupled with the declaration of the Exclusive Economic Zone in 1983 have provided the impetus to assess the resource potential of heavy-mineral concentrations in U.S. Continental Shelf sediments as ...

Heavy mineral deposits have been known from Liberia since the 1950s from both river and beach placers. The heavy mineral content of beach sands ranges between 28i?½62% and the suite includes ilmenite, rutile, zircon and magnetite. These occur together with kyanite, sillimanite, staurolite and garnet. The average ilmenite content is 82% with minor zircon (11%), rutile (6%) and monazite (1% ...

ABSTRACT Surface and borehole sampling along a ∼80 km section of the lower Tista river, northwestern Bangladesh, indicated that the river sands offer significant potential as a heavy mineral (HM) resource. Characterisation of sediments from the surface to 15 m depth showed that the sand-sized component was dominated by quartz, feldspar, mica, lithic fragments, amphibole and pyroxene group ...

HEAVY-MINERAL POTENTIAL OF SHELF AREAS: A REVIEW

After a discussion of the principles of heavy-mineral enrichment and shelf sedimentary history, four models are described which can explain the genesis of heavy-mineral deposits in shelf areas. On the basis of these models, the heavy-mineral potential of most shelf areas is estimated to be significantly lower than the potential of their neighbouring coastal plains.
