Paper Title
Mineral and Particle Shape Characterization of Leungah Beach Iron Sand

Leungah iron sand and particle shape characterization analysis had been carried out and purposive sampling method was used. The physical parameters observed in this study were sand, sand shape and sand grain size. Mineral content was carried out with XRD (X-Ray Diffraction) and the form of particle was carried out using a microscope. The test results showed that the types of minerals identified were classified into volcanic mineral types from lithogeneous sedimentary types, black in colour, rounded in shape and has the average particle size of 0.14 mm. The results of the mineral content analysis showed that Leungah beach sand contains minerals which are dominated by Cr (Chromium), Hematite (Fe2O3), Calcium Carbonate CaCO3.
