Heavy Minerals in Sands along Brahmaputra (Jamuna)

2016-1-28 · Non-marine alluvial sand placer deposits are also known to be sources of heavy minerals (HMs), e.g. Gbangbama deposit in Sierra Leone [4], central Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia [3]. Compared to HM sand accumulations in beach sand deposits, the concentration of HMs in river sands is generally lower, with as little as 5% - 10% total HMs [4].

7 Sedimentary Minerals and Sedimentary Rocks –

The term siliciclastic refers to sediments composed mostly of silicate minerals. The most common sedimentary rocks – including shale, sandstone, and conglomerate – form from siliciclastic sediments. Other, less common, kinds of sedimentary rocks consist of carbonates (in limestones), iron oxides and hydroxides (such as hematite or goethite), or other minerals.
