Opaque oxide minerals (ilmenite, chromite, and magnetite) in sands from the Oregon continental shelf have been studied to establish the provenance, dispersal, and grade of potential shelf placer deposits. The study area extends southward from offshore of the Columbia River in northern Oregon to the Klamath River in northern California.
