Characterisation and Response to Beneficiation of Ferruginous Chromite Ores

Bhima Rao, R and Charan, T G and Sastri, S R S (1985) Characterisation and Response to Beneficiation of Ferruginous Chromite Ores. In: Proceedings of National Seminar on Mineral Processing and IX Annual Technical Convention of Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, 11th & 12th March 1985, National Metallurgical Laboratory(CSIR) Jamshedpur.



Sukinda-Nausahi belt of Orissa, represent about 90% of the Indian Chromite ore reserves. These ores are later-itic type in nature resulted by weathering of ultrabasic rocks, Metallurgical industries consume maximum chromite ores- around 50% followed by refractory and chemical indu-stries which consume about 35% and 15% respectively. The utility pattern of chromite in industries is varying greatly. The variation in the demand could be due to lim-ited market for medium and low grade chromite. Hence it is necessary to improve the chromium content for better util-isation and conservation of available resources.
