NORTH SHORE ROCK & MINERAL CLUB
"Chromite, the only mineral source of Chromium"
Presented By: Tom Rich
We will visit
and investigate the largest Chromite deposits in Bushveld Complex of South Africa, where most of the world's greatest resources of Platinum, Palladium and Chromite occur. During one of his trips to
the mines in this area, he had the opportunity to pickup rare crystals of the chromite and tour the Tubatse Refinery purifying chromite ore. Chrome is an integral constituent in many colorful
minerals we collect, but chromite crystals are extremely rare in mineral collections because the deposits are just as rare. We will see some of the processing and purification issues mining companies
face on a daily basis.and how this effects the costs of products we use everyday.
There will be No Pebble Pups this month
RERRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED AFTER A
MEETING. CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE REFRESHMENT TABLE
ALWAYS WELCOME! NO PEANUT PRODUCTS, PLEASE.
