Chief scientist: Ed Escowitz
Objectives: Delineation of placer heavy minerals in a number of study areas. Follow-up sampling of areas previously sampled.
Type of Activity: Sampling; Seismic profiling; Vibracore;Vibracore
Information to be derived:
Summary: A total of 60 vibracores and 72 grab samples were acquired. The majority of the grab samples were processed at sea using the three-turn spiral to concentrate the heavy minerals. Selected grab samples were examined microscopically to determine the major constituents of the heavy-mineral assemblages present.
