2019115&ensp·&enspMineral sands exploration in 2016 was $19.4 million 1, down 19% on 2015 expenditure ($23.9 million). In 2016, mineral sands exploration expenditure comprised around 1% of total Australian exploration spend ($1426 million). Production. In 2016, Australia produced 1.4 Mt of ilmenite, 0.3 Mt of rutile and 0.6 Mt of zircon (Table 2).
201739&ensp·&enspThe term "Mineral Sands" refers to sands which contain suites of minerals with high specific gravity (> 4 Specific Gravity) known as heavy minerals. Heavy minerals occurs as disseminated, associated or concentrated deposits within the sands. Found in
Lats week, I was invited to speak on "The current investment landscape for mining, exploration and mineral sands" at the 19th Australian Mineral Sands Conference here in Perth. The presentation explored three broad, global trends and their highlevel impact on mining and exploration, with some further specific thoughts on mineral sands, in
To estimate an exploration target for future exploration the block model method has been used. An estimation of the exploration target size has been estimated for a worst and a best case scenario. In the best case scenario, the Total Heavy Mineral (THM) content in the first two meters of sandy coast is assumed to be continuous.

Full expenditure on exploration for mineral sands has not been available since 2010. The available exploration figures for mineral sands for the March, September and December quarters in 2012 totalled $31.2 million. The exploration figure for the June quarter in 2012 was not available.

20191118&ensp·&enspMineral rights acquisition Mineral exploration rights. A prospector or company must apply for a Metallic and Industrial Minerals Permit for mineral exploration rights to a specific area where the province owns the minerals. The appliion must contain a land description based on the legal land survey system in Alberta (township, range, meridian).

2019328&ensp·&enspThe current Tajiri Mineral Resource is in addition to the Exploration Target of 38Mt to 64Mt for the combined TC Central and South zones (refer to announcements 23 October 2018 and 18 February 2019). Tajiri is the secondmost advanced project in the Company's mineral sands portfolio behind the developmentready Fungoni project.
20191118&ensp·&enspMineral sands are old beach, river or dune sands that contain concentrations of the important minerals, rutile, ilmenite, zircon and monazite. These 'heavy' minerals have a relative density of between 4 and 5.5 g/cm 3 and are much heavier than common sand minerals such as quartz which has a density of around 2.65 g/cm 3 .
20191117&ensp·&enspThe Fungoni project is an openpit heavy mineral sands (HMS) project loed approximately 25km to the south of Dar es Salaam port, Tanzania. Strandline is developing the project through its fully owned subsidiary, Jacana Resources. The mine is
The aim of this thesis study is to increase the geological knowledge on the presence of Heavy Mineral Sands (HMS) in the concession areas owned by Guinea Alluvial Mining (GAM) in Guinea. In order to achieve this aim the following main research question has been formulated: Does exploration of the concession areas show sufficient Heavy Mineral Sand prospectivity for further exploration?
The Fingerboards Mineral Sands Project focuses on a highgrade area of heavy minerals in the Glenaladale deposit, about 20km northwest of Bairnsdale in East Gippsland, Victoria. The project has the potential to be one of the world's major producers of zircon, ilmenite, rutile and rare earths – minerals essential to technology, transport
Exploration Methods Assessment and Selection of an Area for Exploration. Typically, for mineral sands exploration – drill targets are best defined through a review of previous air core drilling in the EL combined with a review of geophysics. The first stage of drilling often involves roadside air core drilling to depths of less than 50
Geology & Exploration in the Murray Basin Why the Murray Basin? The MB is an intracratonic sedimentary basin of Cainozoic age (66 Ma present) that extends across 300 000 km 2 of NSW, Victoria and South Australia. The upper sequences of the MB, principally the Loxton–Parilla Sands (LPS), are known to contain economic accumulations of heavy mineral sands.

Broken Hill Prospecting Limited has commenced a maiden drilling programme at two heavy mineral sands projects in western NSW. The company will target two known heavy mineral sands
TZMI estimates it takes close to seven years between exploration and commissioning of a new titanium feedstock operation. With renewed interest in the mineral sands sector from the investment community, some new projects may accelerate their timeframe for development in an environment of increased demand and pricing.
