Chapter 33 Heavy Minerals and Detrital Fission-Track

Jan 01, 2007  Combined Heavy Mineral: Detrital FT Studies. FT analysis has a relatively long record of use in provenance studies (Hurford and Carter, 1991; Carter, 1999; Garver et al., 1999, and references therein), principally because it was one of the first mineral dating techniques based on data extracted from single grains.

Chapter 7 Stability of Detrital Heavy Minerals During

Jan 01, 2007  1. Introduction. Heavy-mineral analysis is one of the most widely used techniques in the determination of sandstone provenance. A large number of detrital heavy-mineral species have been identified in sandstones: over 50 translucent detrital minerals were described by Mange and Maurer (1992), many of which have specific and restricted parageneses, thereby providing crucial provenance ...

A detrital heavy mineral viewpoint on sediment

Dec 01, 2012  Detrital heavy mineral abundances and zircon morphological types were studied in 69 river sand samples collected from 11 drainage basins in the Malay Peninsula and Sumatra (Figs. 1 and 2). Samples were chosen to cover a range of lithologies exposed in each basin.

Heavy Minerals - Origin Analytical

Detrital heavy mineral analysis is one of the most rewarding techniques for sedimentary provenance studies. There are a large variety of heavy mineral species present in detrital rocks, and many of them primarily crystallise only in specific rock types. For example, Cr spinel is diagnostic of peridotitic detritus, whereas kyanite and staurolite indicate contribution from...

Heavy mineral assemblages and UPb detrital zircon

Jan 15, 2021  Detrital zircon U Pb ages and heavy mineral assemblages of Pliocene to Pleistocene sediments from the Weihe Basin and the Sanmen Basin were analyzed in this study. The provenance of the Weihe Basin shows major changes at 2.6 Ma and 1.8 Ma, indicating an expansion of the fluvial drainage, probably to the NE Tibetan Plateau.

Detrital heavy minerals from Lower Jurassic clastic rocks

Detrital heavy mineral assemblages have been widely used to identify and characterize sediment sources. Chemical variation in specific mineral phases is useful for provenance analyses (e.g. Morton 1991 ) because the variation is insensitive to modification by weathering, hydraulics, and diagenesis ( Morton Hallsworth 1999 ).

Jul 09, 2018  Intrastratal solution of detrital heavy minerals in North Sea Tertiary sandstones takes place in two different diagenetic settings, deep burial and acidic weathering. These are characterized by different orders of mineral stability: apatite, chloritoid, garnet, sphene and spinel are less stable in acidic weathering than in deep burial, whereas ...

Accordingly, concentrations of heavy minerals are ex-pected tovary on the orogen scale.

BRADLEY et al. - Heavy Minerals in Taramakau Catchment 235 As an initial step we have examined the heavy detrital minerals in feeder streams of the Taramakau River catchment. This particular area was chosen on account of both its accessibility and the widespread occurrence of two major Westland rock types, the Haast Schist and Tuhua Granites.

HEAVY MINERAL ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM THE

zircon, other heavy detrital minerals such as monazite, rutile and ilmenite are important indicators of provenance. As weathering occurs during transportation, deposition, and diagenesis, some detrital grains will remain in the rock, which can aid in tracing the sediment’s source.

Opaque heavy minerals (e.g., pyrite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite, chromite, magnetite, and Mn-rich ilmenite) occur as free detrital grains (Figure 5D) or are hosted within mafic rock clasts, whilst non-opaque heavy minerals (e.g., zircon, apatite, monazite, and garnet) are hosted in felsic rock clasts.

The clastic record is commonly interrogated by analysis of detrital heavy mineral assemblages, with the bulk of modern detrital geochronological studies employing U-Pb dating of detrital zircon. However, the bias of zircon toward felsic igneous sources, and the limited ability of the U-Pb system in zircon to record low- to medium-grade metamorphic events, means that the U-Pb detrital zircon ...

Abstract Heavy mineral and detrital magnetite geochemistry were analyzed to extract sediment provenance indexes from different reaches of the modern Yangtze River which were used to trace sediment source of the Yangtze Delta and to speculate its geomorphology change since the Pliocene.

Heavy mineral analysis - Wikipedia

Heavy minerals (minerals with a density greater than 2.89 g/cm 3) have highly variable stabilities with respect to transport/weathering but the combined effects of chemical weathering, transport and diagenesis (and overall maturity) tend to decrease their percentage in the whole rock.Therefore, the average heavy mineral yield in sandstones is about 1% but can be a lot

However, the heavy mineral assemblage changed with a remarkable increase of amphiboles, including pargasite, winchite, and rare riebeckite, at 13 Ma. Detrital chromian spinels were found in several horizons. Then, the chemical composition of detrital garnets changed to more pyrope-rich compositions at approximately 9 Ma.

Heavy mineral analysis is a long-standing and valuable tool for sedimentary provenance analysis. Many studies have indicated that heavy mineral data can also be significantly affected by hydraulic sorting, weathering and reworking or recycling, leading to incomplete or erroneous provenance interpretations if they are used in isolation.

The presence of detrital uraninite and pyrite in fluvial placers of the Witwatersrand basin, South Africa, has been used to infer low levels of atmospheric oxygen during the Archean (>2500 Ma). However, recent studies advocate a hydrothermal origin for these minerals, thereby limiting their value as constraints on the composition of the early atmosphere.

Nov 29, 2005  Implicit in this assumption is the idea that all units have equal potential to contribute heavy minerals in proportion to their exposure area in the source region. In reality, the detrital mineral population may be biased by variable concentrations of minerals in bedrock and differential erosion rates within the source region.

Jul 07, 2020  The multivariate discrimination of the detrital garnets reveals the dominance of granulite and amphibolite facies source rocks. Rutile compositions indicate subordinate inputs from mafic sources across the investigated sedimentary succession. The single-grain analysis of heavy minerals, therefore, infers a wide variation in source rock types.
