Summary:Two different areas constitute the source of the magnetite sands in the coastal placers of Brittany. North of the Loire, the ilmenite-rich deposits come from the Armorican basement. South of the Loire, ilmenite-poor and augite-rich deposits come from late volcanic rocks of the French Massif Central. [M.L.]
