Mining Placer mining Placers are unconsolidated deposits of detrital material containing valuable minerals. The natural processes by which they form range from chemical weathering to stream, marine, and wind action. Typical minerals recovered in placers are gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, titaniferous and ferrous iron sands, gemstones (rubies, emeralds, and sapphires), and abrasives (rutile
The only ores of chromium are the minerals chromite and magnesiochromite. Most of the time, economic geology names chromite the whole chromite magnesiochromite series FeCr 2 O 4, (Fe,Mg)Cr 2 O 4, (Mg,Fe)Cr 2 O 4 and MgCr 2 O 4. The two main products of chromite refining are ferrochromium and metallic chromium; for those products the ore smelter process differs considerably.
