Garnet International Group Pte Ltd, based in Singapore, on behalf of Australian Garnet Pty Ltd, specialises in the marketing, research and development and distribution of high quality West Australian garnet products, primarily for industrial applications in the resources and energy sectors and global water jet cutting industries.
Our operations, 120km north of the port of Geraldton in Western Australia, have secured all relevant government licences and approvals, and production planning is now underway. Situated near existing transport and township infrastructure, Australian Garnet is well positioned to meet the growing need for quality industrial garnet as an ecologically friendly solution for sand blasting and water jet cutting in industrial applications.
Australian Garnet have drawn together some of the most experienced personnel across mine design, metallurgy, engineering and design to bring the Balline and Menari mines into full production mode.
The key in-house personnel are now working closely with management to develop the production capacities and bring the high-quality Australian almandine garnet product to market in 2018.
Australian Garnet will bring to market top quality almandine garnet for use in industrial abrasive applications and water jet cutting industries. Global interest in our products is growing, with product sales assured in key international markets. Our products also have significant health and recyclability applications, with high quality garnet seen as a much safer alternative to silica sand and other industrial slag abrasives.
While based in Singapore, the company's key operations are in Western Australia. The management team are drawn from across the business spectrum, and all are key equity holders in the project. They bring a wealth of experience and knowledge in developing and bringing these branded West Australian products to market..
Australian Garnet's two key mining projects are at Balline and Menari, on the coast of Western Australia. They are located close to key infrastructure, which will allow these sites to be effectively manned.
