Abstract:

Coastal placer ore is one of the minerals, which demonstrates highly economic values and is used in many industrial applications. The demand for ilmenite, zircon and monazite, etc. has increased during the recent years. The coastal placer along the Ninh Thuan Province elongates over ~120 km, from Phong Dien to Ham Tan, in which the South Suoi Nhum Placer shows a high potential of the heavy minerals. Therefore, studying the spatial distribution, and mineral resources of the mineral placers for quality evaluation, mining feasibility and mineral processing is an essential task. In this paper, the authors describe the distribution pattern and potential of heavy mineral in the South Suoi Nhum Placer in order for orientation of mining and processing of placers in Vietnam and coastal area of Binh Thuan particularl.
