Ward, J. & Newman, J.K., 1949. Beach sands investigation: an investigation of the variations in the composition of heavy mineral concentrates in the Broadbeach recreational area and of the thoria content of the monazite in the area. Record  1949/110. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Results are given of investigations carried out to detect any variation in the relative proportions of the several heavy minerals in heavy concentrates separated out from beach sands of the Broadbeach Recreational Area. The possible variation of the thoria content of monazite in the area is also investigated. Results indicate a systematic variation from east to west in the proportion of Zircon, rutile and ilmenite in the concentrates. The thoria content of the monazite in the area is shown to be constant within experimental limits.
