River sand is suitable for all construction purposes. As there is very very low salt content they can be used for a variety of construction purposes like brick making, plastering, concreting etc.

Whereas Sea sand due to its High salt content. it is only suitable for land refilling / reclaiming. Not advised and permitted for use in construction industry.
