The heavy mineralogy of the sand fraction for 37 offshore, 9 beach and 3 stream samples for this region is determined optically. For each sample the percentage of the more diagnostic transparent minerals is plotted graphically in order of persistence zircon, garnet, biotite, clinozoisite and epidote, lawsonite, green hornblende, oxy-hornblende, glaucophane, sphene, zoisite, augite, jadeite, hypersthene, enstatite, and tremolite and actinolite. Additional data on accessory transparent minerals, composite grains rock fragments and opaque minerals are listed with each graph. Author
