Staurolite is separated from heavy mineral concentrate in the dry mill at Chandala.
Staurolite is a relatively hard, inert mineral with similar properties to garnet, making it suitable as an abrasive sand blasting media. In this application, it is directed at a metal surface using compressed air through a nozzle, so that the grains of staurolite cut through and remove any paint, rust or other residual coatings. The cleaned surface is then ready for painting or welding as part of industrial plant maintenance and construction activities.
