The heavy mineralogy of the sand fraction for 44 offshore, 9 beach, and 3 stream samples for this region is determined optically. For each sample the percentage of the more abundant or more diagnostic transparent minerals is plotted graphically in order of persistence and additional data on accessory transparent minerals, opaques, and composite grains (rock fragments) are listed.
