Heavy minerals, including monazite, in Egypt's black sand ...

01/04/1989  Egypt's heavy-mineral sands are derived during flood times from the upper reaches of the Nile, transported down the river and its tributaries to the Mediterranean, and concentrated by the sea. During its northward course through Egypt, the Nile rarely receives water from the surrounding areas, except during cloudbursts [5]. Weathering 81 and decomposition of the distant mountain ranges during ...

Heavy minerals, including monazite, in Egypt's black sand ...

Egypt's black sand deposits are located in the Nile Delta between Alexandria and Rosetta. They contain substantial reserves of heavy-mineral sands. This paper discusses the geologic history of the Nile Valley and the possible source of heavy minerals. It describes Egypt's development of these deposits in the 1950s and 1960s and provides mineralogical and chemical analyses of these beach ...

Heavy mineral sand - Sandatlas

Heavy mineral sand from Sri Lanka which contains lots of intensely colored spinel grains. Width of view 20 mm. These minerals often occur in sand, but usually in low quantities (less than 1 percent). Sometimes they get concentrated in beaches or river bottoms to form beautiful and unusual-looking sand samples. The composition of these sand samples is highly variable. The most common ...
