Abstract: 

Zircon (ZrSiO4) is the most abundant and important mineral that contains Zirconium (Zr). Zirconium and Zirconia (ZrO2) are obtained from Zircon. Zircon is recovered from placer deposits containing heavy minerals.
According to surveys, heavy minerals have been deposited in some areas of Caspian Sea southern coast, also these sediments were observed in beach sands of Babolsar- Noor.
In this thesis, for determining the provenance and distribution of Zircon, sedimentology and heavy minerals experiments (heavy liquids and magnetic separation) were performed on 17 coastal samples, and by finding the placer of Zircon concentration, sampling and complementary studies were done on other 16 samples along Haraz River and its branches. Samples were studied with binocular microscope. Consequently, origin of Zircons is upstream igneous bodies including Cretaceous diabases, basalts and andesites which were leached by Haraz River and carried to the beach. Were the deposit formed sea placers due to high specific weight of Zircon?
