A Study Of The Beneficiation Of Low-Grade Domestic Chromite, Darrell Edward Bodie May 1953

A Study Of The Beneficiation Of Low-Grade Domestic Chromite, Darrell Edward Bodie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Chromite, a strategic mineral, is being consumed in ever increasing quantities in the United States today. Although the United States imports practically all of the chromite that is being consumed, it is gradually becoming necessary to exploit the low-grade deposits that are located within the United States, and also the low-grade deposits of Canada.

Chromite is the most important ore used for the production of chromium and chromium alloys. At present, the domestic production is insignificant as compared with the amount of chromite consumed in the United States.

The United States, although the leading consumer of chromite, depends almost entirely on imports for its supply. Domestic production of chromite is limited, because high-grade imported ore is plentiful and inexpensive in normal times. There are several large deposits of chromite in the United States, representing millions of tons of low grade ore. These deposits form a strategic reserve that must be used in time of national emergency.


The Application Of A Laboratory Induction Furnace To The Selective Smelting Of A Montana Chromite Concentrate, James H. Mcmahon May 1942

The Application Of A Laboratory Induction Furnace To The Selective Smelting Of A Montana Chromite Concentrate, James H. Mcmahon

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this experimental work was to determine with the utilization of a laboratory sized induction furnace a method whereby a high-iron Montana chromite concentrate could be successfully smelted to yield a product suitable for the subsequent production of standard ferrochrome.

In 1939 the total world production of crude chromite was approximately 1,167,000 metric tons; of which the United States produced only 3,672 metric tons and imported over 317,500 metric tons. Imports came mostly from the Philippine Islands, Cuba, South Africa, and Rhodesia.


Chromite Deposits Near Red Lodge And Silver Star, Montana, Edmond F. Smigel Apr 1942

Chromite Deposits Near Red Lodge And Silver Star, Montana, Edmond F. Smigel

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Red Lodge and Silver Star chromite deposits of Montana have stimulated much interest during periods of war. The Red Lodge deposit is 25 miles southwest of Red Lodge which is also the nearest railroad point. Several workings are scattered throughout the area, exposing lense-like ore bodies averaging 33% chrome oxide. Silver Star is a much smaller deposit 5 miles west of Silver Star, Montana, which is its nearest rail­road point. Lenses of chromite are exposed by pits and trench­es, which average approximately 36% chromic oxide.


The Beneficiation Of Montana Silver Star Chromite Ore, Edwin J. Bride Apr 1942

The Beneficiation Of Montana Silver Star Chromite Ore, Edwin J. Bride

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

It is known that there are large deposits of chromium ore in Stillwater and Carbon Counties in South-Central Montana. The late James F. Kemp of Columbia University, stated in 1928, that these were the largest chromium deposits in the United States and probably in the world, although they were not considered of commercial grade as compared with foreign ores.


Some Chromite Deposits In Madison County, Montana, Russell H. W. Chadwick May 1941

Some Chromite Deposits In Madison County, Montana, Russell H. W. Chadwick

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Chromite occurs in Madison County, Montana, in two areas, one three miles southwest of Silver Star, the other five miles southeast of Sheridan. The ore bodies are small, lenticular masses surrounded by metamorphosed sedimentary rocks of the pre-Cambrian Cherry Creek series. The ore was deposited from the hydrothermal solutions which serpentinized the surrounding metamorphic host rocks.
