A study was carried out on the mineral composition and free Iron oxides of the sediments of the Tigris and Euphrates river. Two soils were selected representing the sediments of the Tigris (AlNumaniyah) and Euphrates river (Al-Shamiya), and physical and chemical analyzes were conducted on them, the sand is separated by means of a sieve whose openings are (53 microns) in the presence and absence of oxides into sand separations (53-2000) micrometers, to prepare them for metallurgical examinations.
