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.
