In this article the results are published of an investigation concerning the behaviour of the heavy mineral content of sands with the changing of the grainsize. Samples are considered from the Dutch Pleistocene and the French Eocene. The investigation led to the result that most heavy minerals are sensitive to such a change. The possible reasons for the sensitivity of the grainsize are also discussed.
