Chromite mining pollution, environmental impact, toxicity

Sep 24, 2020 Chromite mining activities are indispensable for production of goods and services. Sukinda is a major mining site of Odisha, India, polluted by chromium, which is highly toxic in its hexavalent form. The Sukinda valley is a rich source of chromites, amounting to almost 95% of Cr available in India, and is the fourth most polluted site worldwide.

Chromite: The only mineral ore of chromium metal

What is Chromite? Chromite is an oxide mineral composed of chromium, iron, and oxygen (FeCr 2 O 4).It is dark gray to black in color with a metallic to submetallic luster and a high specific gravity. It occurs in basic and ultrabasic igneous rocks and in the metamorphic and sedimentary rocks that are produced when chromite-bearing rocks are altered by heat or weathering.

Orissa accounts for 95 percent of the chromium ore reserves of India. It increases the economic status, but adversely reduces the ecological cover. Chromite mines generate considerable quantity of pollutants containing toxic hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen, which contaminates 10 to 4000 mg/kg (ppm) of total chromium in air, water and soil environment.

Review of Chromite Ore Processing Residue (COPR): Past

Chromite ore processing residue (COPR) is a waste byproduct of chromate production that contains high levels of hexavalent chromium (Cr[VI]). Although the high temperature chromite process was banned in several countries, its legacy still exists at numerous contaminated sites. For instance, New Jersey alone has over 2 million tons of waste COPR.

The Ring of Fire is the name given to a massive planned chromite mining and smelting development project in the mineral-rich James Bay Lowlands of Northern Ontario. The Ring of Fire development would impact nine First Nations, and potential developers are required to negotiate an Impact Benefit Agreement with these communities prior to development. The region is centred on McFaulds Lake,
