Abstract: Chromite, being the primary source for manufacture of many industrially important alloys, chemicals and refractories, is a valuable and strategic raw material. The total chromite resources of India at present are estimated at about 17 mt. Orissa accounts for about 85% of the above reserves and about 99% of the present total annual production. In spite of this, India imports a substantial quantity of chrome finished products and exports a substantial quantity of chrome ores. With the present trend of export, the chromite deposit of India is estimated to fast only for about 50 years. This paper stresses the urgent need for conservation of this ore and highlights its proper and judicious utilization with reference to the present and future trend of consumption. Recommendations for proper utilization by way of establishing new industries have been made.
