They are 9x enriched in rare earth elements and show a significantly stronger negative Eu-Anomaly, and an enrichment of heavy over light rare earth elements, as well as higher Zr/Sc ratios (82 to 299), typical for reworked passive margin or foreland deposits. Heavy-mineral sands operations are typically economic based on their production of titanium minerals (ilmenite and rutile), zircon, and sometimes additional industrial minerals. Economic mineral deposits with coexisting thorium-rich minerals could be evaluated as sources of byproduct or potentially coproduct thorium ( Fig. 10.8 ) if a market develops for thorium in the future.
