 Abstract
Mineralogical study was carried out for heavy minerals in the sea sand near Ongjingun bay, Kyonggi-do separated using the gravity and magnetic separators. Ilmenite, zircon and minor monazite and garnet were valuable minerals with gangue minerals of quartz, K-feldspar, plagioclase, muscovite, hornblende, epidote and chlorite. Quantitative analysis with SIROQUANT program showed that the contents of ilmenite separated with the gravity separation (the shaking table separation), the 1st step magnetic separation (rare earth magnetic separation) and the 2nd step magnetic separation (the Eddy current magnetic separation) were increased into 0.8, 18.3, and 48.7%, respectively. The content of ilmenite, monazite and zircon were recalculated based on the chemical composition of the representative and heavy fraction products of raw sand, the 1 step and 2 step gravity separations, and the 1 step and 2 step magnetic separations. The content increased to 0.23, 0.55, 5.22, 16.17, and 44.99% in ilmenite, 0.11, 0.02, 0.16, 0.51, and 1.19% in monazite. Although the zircon content did not differ over the processes (0.13, 0.12, 0.11, 0.15, and 0.10%), the improved recovery of zircon is expected by applying sieving process because of its high content (27%) in the fine grain size fraction (< 140#) of the 2 step gravity separation.
