The garnet is then shipped to the mill for final processing and packaging. Beach deposits, such as those mined in Western Australia and in southern India, lend themselves to low-cost earth-moving techniques using scrapers and bulldozers to cut and excavate benches parallel to the trend of the beach and/or bar deposit.
Garnet was developed between 1987 and 1994 by the User Interface Software Group in the Human Computer Interaction Institute in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. The primary research interest of the UISG is the development of tools to allow rapid development of graphical user interfaces.

At our garnet reprocessing facilities, spent garnet sourced from blasting and waterjet cutting activities is first cleaned to remove all contaminants including dust, rust, paint flakes, metallic particles and other impurities. This is followed by precise sizing into various grades to suit end user requirements.

Processing Garnets Workers must remove garnets from the surrounding rock, wash, screen and sort them by quality. This happens on the surface above the mines, often with machinery and conveyors built specifically for the purpose.
