Chrome Mining in South Africa

South Africa is rich in mineral resources. Because of low electricity prices, South Africa has been able to more or less continuously expand production of chromite and ferrochrome, since the process was developed in the 1960s, using ferrochrome from low-grade ore.

Chrome Mining and Processing

Based on the location and nature of the chromite deposit, chromium ore can be processed by open quarrying or underground mining. Zenith supplies chrome mining and production plants with a total capacity of about 5.8 million tons per year.

Underground deposits are processed mainly through pillar mining, usually using a low-angle platform connected to a horizontal channel. Thin seams limit the range of mechanization, and blasting relies on the use of hand-held pneumatic jacks for drilling. The ore is mined up and down in a room about 20 metres wide, with the roof supported by pillars. Open pit mine USES 8 ton loading shovel and 40 ton capacity truck.

Production Plant for Chrome Mining

Ore extracted from the mine with a grade of 40% chromium oxide or greater is suitable for processing directly in the off-site ferrochrome production facility. Ore with a lower grade must be processed to increase its chromite content. Ore that is not suitable to ship directly to the ferrochrome production facility will be processed at the mine site to produce concentrate.

Zenith production plant for chrome mining includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, ball mill, high pressure mill, sand washing machine, vibrating screen and feeder, filtering machine, gravity separator, magnetic separator, flotation separator, thickener, dryer, belt conveyor etc. Please contact us for more information.
