heavy mineral shoreline

Cooljarloo Mine Tronox

Grains of valuable heavy minerals were deposited on ancient shorelines thousands of years ago, where the action of waves and wind formed belts of minerals called strand lines. Today, Tronox produces more than 770,000 metric tons of heavy mineral concentrate a year from strand lines using a dredging operation and dry mining techniques.

Heavy Minerals Research Papers Academia.edu

Heavy mineral sands tend to concentrate in certain shoreline settings during storm activity. Repeated storm erosion and reworking over centuries (e.g., the southeastern coast of Australia) or millennia (e.g., the Eucla and Murray Basins of Australia) can progressively enrich heavy mineral sand deposits.
