Generally, no. Sand is more permeable and contains smaller and lighter particles of whatever minerals are present (lots of quartz and silica, some others too!) When a spring goes through a sandy bed, it will pick up far more minerals than if it comes through a rocky bed. However, if the rock bed is made up of rocks that are very permeable, like limestone, many minerals can be extracted by a flowing stream.
