Mineralogy of VIBRACORE Heavy-Mineral Concentrates and Preliminary<BR>Stratigraphic Framework of the Southern Inner Continental Shelf of North Carolina -<BR>NCGS Open-File Report 94-2

This paper presents a listing of heavy-mineral (specific gravity (sp gr) > 2.96) and textural data from a reconnaissance study of 47 vibracores from the southern inner Continental Shelf of North Carolina. A preliminary lithostratigraphic framework for the project area is also presented. Most of the vibracores were obtained from the Cape Fear cuspate foreland area (Figures 1, 2, and 3). This work is part of a multi-year project aimed at developing the stratigraphic framework and assessing the potential for heavy-mineral resources along the southern inner Continental Shelf of North Carolina. This is the fourth interim report generated from this project. By John G. Nickerson, Wenfeng Li, Mary E. Watson, and Richard C. Dentzman, 1994. 29 pages.
