Heavy mineral sands ore deposits Wikipedia

Heavy mineral sands are a class of ore deposit which is an important source of zirconium, titanium, thorium, tungsten, rare-earth 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.

Chapter 45 Heavy-Mineral Sands of the Atlantic and Gulf

Heavy minerals were first mined from surface and near-surface sands of the Atlantic Coastal Plain in 1916, when Buckman and Pritchard opened a mine on a beach near Mineral City, Florida, to recover ilmenite. Numerous heavy-mineral deposits have since been identified within the surface sands of the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains.
