EXPLORATION OF BEACH-PLACER HEAVY MINERAL DEPOSITS …

The San Juan Basin, New Mexico contains many heavy mineral beach-placer sandstone deposits of Cretaceous age. Beach-placer sandstone deposits are concentrations of heavy minerals that formed by mechanical concentrations (i.e. settling) of heavy minerals on beaches or in longshore bars in a marginal-marine environment. They

Sandstone | Minerals Education Coalition

Sandstone. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed mostly of quartz sand, but it can also contain significant amounts of feldspar, and sometimes silt and clay. Sandstone that contains more than 90% quartz is called quartzose sandstone. When the sandstone contains more than 25% feldspar, it is called arkose or arkosic sandstone.

Sandstones and Conglomerates

The more common minerals in sandstones, quartz and feldspar, have densities of less than 2,700 kg/m 3, but most accessory minerals, with the exception of muscovite, have densities greater than 3,000 kg/m 3. Thus the accessory minerals are usually referred to as heavy minerals. This is convenient because if the sandstone can be desegregated ...

 · Note in Table 2 that there are several densities reported for the same mineral group, such as feldspar or clay. The density will change systematically as composition varies. For example, in the plagioclase series, the density increases as sodium (albite, ρ = 2.61 g/cm 3) is replaced by calcium (anorthite, ρ = 2.75 g/cm 3).The most problematic minerals are clays, particularly expanding clays ...

 · Accessory minerals are all other mineral grains in a sandstone; commonly these minerals make up just a small percentage of the grains in a sandstone. Common accessory minerals include micas (muscovite and biotite), olivine, pyroxene, and corundum. Many of these accessory grains are more dense than the silicates that make up the bulk of the rock.
