Black sand?

Recommended Posts

In a recent discussion with a friend of mine, we were pondering the composition of "Black Sands".

I've heard that it may contain some "rare earth" minerals but I don't really have any definitive info on the subject.

I also understand there may be a market for some of it's contents.

Any one have some info that may reveal some of the mineral make up? :hmmmmm:

Most black sands are magnetics, Hematite and/or magnetite. Some gold can also be covered in black. Yes, refineries will purchase black sand cons if they assay out well enough. There are millions of threads of info on black sands and recovery of valuables from them..........
