Ward, J., 1952. The use of the Frantz Isodynamic Separator in the separation of minerals in heavy mineral beach sands. Record  1952/005. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The beach sands on which investigations were carried out, were mainly from beaches along the eastern coast of Australia and from islands adjacent to this coast. A high percentage of the mineral grains of the heavy mineral fraction in these sands have grain sizes within the range -100 to +200, referred to British Standard Sieves. The grain size of the minerals, combined with the fact that the grains are quite well rounded, makes the heavy mineral sands an ideal subject for separation using the inclined method with the Isodynamic Separator. The use of this method, and the results obtained, are described in this report.
