Distribution of the main heavy minerals identified in sediment core CRP-2/2A, supplement to: Polozek, Kerstin (2000): Distribution of heavy minerals in CRP-2/2a, Victoria Land Basin, Antarctica. Terra Antartica, 7(4), 567-573

Kerstin Polozek & Werner Ehrmann
Heavy minerals from the lower Oligocene to Quaternary sediments of the CRP-2/2A drill core have been analysed in order to characterize the mineralogical composition of the sediments and to reconstruct their source areas.In the heavy mineral spectrum, pyroxenes up to 90 % predominate. Hornblende, stable heavy minerals (zircon, garnet, epidote, titanite and apatite), opaque and altered minerals are quantitatively minor. Also titanaugite and glass occur in minor amounts. The distribution of heavy minerals throughout the...
