Rao, D S and Vijaya Kumar, T V and Subba Rao, S and Bhaskar Raju, G and Prabhakar, S (2005) Alteration characteristics of manavalakurichi beach placer illmenite, Tamilnadu. Journal of Applied Geochemistry, 7 (2). pp. 195-200.
The mineralogy and alteration characteristics of beach placer ilmenite from the Manavalakurichi coast were investigated by optical microscopy and electron probe microanalysis. Mineral chemistry by electron probe micro-analysis indicated ;enrichment of TI02, MgO, AI203, Cr203, Si02. K20, V205,. CaO and Na20 in the altered products ofilmenitc:. while there was a loss of iron oxide, maganesc oxide and zinc oxide from the ilmenite grains during weathering leading to leucoxene
