The nature and distribution of heavy minerals along beach placers have been studied along the coastal part of Podampata, Eastern Coast of Odisha, India. The primary objective of this study was to assess the heavy mineral placers along the NE–SW direction, the nature of the high background radiation area, and the geomorphic agents controlling the beach sediment distribution.
$\bullet$ The higher abundance of Th is basically along the outer curvature of the meandering part as compared to the U and K occurrences.
$\bullet$ Fine sand sediments with negatively skewness contains higher abundance of radioactive= elements.
$\bullet$ The meandering pattern of Rusikulya River along due to beach action, primarily fluvial and aeolian activity plays an important role in the distribution of the sediments along the coast.
