Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Mineral sands are different to most commodities.
  • The term "mineral sands" normally refers to concentrations of heavy minerals (HM) in an alluvial (old beach or river system) environment.
  • The mineral sands industry consists of two principal product streams:
    First one is-Titanium dioxide minerals  in the form of rutile, ilmenite and leucoxene and the second is Zircon.
  • Ilmenite is also used to manufacture titanium slag and synthetic rutile products.
  • The heavy minerals of the Florida region are very sparse in the areas
    of Pleistocene sands back from the coast
  • Situated on the eastern fringe of the peninsular India, Orissa has about 72.5% of the area occupied by Precambrian metamorphic rocks (of Archaean and Proterozoic age) which host the majority of the minerals
  • The material from the Florida beach and dune sands that has commonly been assumed to be ilmenite has essentially the chemical composition of the material that has been called arizonite.
  • Zircon is the other major product of the mineral sands industry and is a co-product of titanium mineral production.
  • Zircon is also used for the production of zirconia, zirconium metal and zirconium chemicals.
  • Smaller volumes of garnet and staurolite are sold as niche products for specialised use.
  • Repeated storm erosion and reworking over centuries or millennia may progressively enrich a mineral sand deposit.
