Chromite Beneficiation Equipment in South Africa

World resources are estimated to be greater than 12 billion tons of shipping-grade chromite, sufficient to meet demand for centuries. In the region of 95% of the world’s chromium resources are concentrated in Southern Africa and Kazakhstan.

Chromite Beneficiation Techniques

There are many deposits of lower-grade chromite in the world, many methods has been developed for the beneficiation of chromium from them. Gangue materials in more coarsely sized ores can be separated by gravity means, whereas flotation techniques are required for finer-grained materials. Chemical techniques such as hydrometallurgical methods, chlorination, roasting and leaching, and smelting are required for this purpose.


A greater understandlng of the physical properties of chromites and the chemical reactions that take place in the recovery operations is required before the recoveries from lower-grade chromites can be maximized. More efficient recovery operations can be realized if it can be shown definitively that ther reduction of chromites occurs via either a gas-solid or solid-solid mechanism, for example.
