Malekinia, M and Rezai, B (2006) The Studies of Garnet Deposits of Iran from Industrial Application Point of View. In: Proceedings of the International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology and Indo-Korean Workshop on Resource Recycling (MPT-2006), March 8-10, 2006, NML, Chennai.



Garnet is a natural abrasive industrial mineral which produced by four producer In three countries. Garnets include igneous Rocks have formed under metamorphosed and limestone foliated . The most important of the garnet deposits of Iran is located in Koh-E-Gabri, Hamadan and Sangbast in Mashhad .In Iran Garnet is sold about 187$/t, but the range of price in other countries is approximately 160-280$/t. The information about Import and Export and determining the real price of Garnet in Iran is not avail-able definitely. According to the economical and engineer-ing evaluation accomplished on Garnets mine of Iran ,it shows that this mine with greatest Rate of Return ( IRR = 34 %) is one of the best and the most hopeful Garnets mine in Iran. the mines such as Azandrain and Sangbast in Mashahad haven't shown hopeful result Due to its nature.
