Heavy Sands

In association with our partners, Borderless Trading has access to a concession in the Republic of Sierra Leone endowed with heavy minerals and some rare earths in the beach sands and near-shore marine sediments. Heavy minerals on the concession include zircon, ilmenite, rutile and monazite (a source of rare earths).

The black sands can be seen on a wave cut shoreline and occur at concentrations typical of some of current industrial operations in Australia, South Africa, and S.E. USA, ranging from 3% to 6 % heavy minerals.
