Testing for chromite


Chromite is present in the Bird River Sill, 25 km east of Lac du Bonnet, in southeast Manitoba. Gossan Resources Limited’s property contains 5 million tonnes of 7% Cr2O3, as defined by 19 drillholes in 1942.

The deposit averages 12.8 m wide 900 m long and 100 m deep. Metallurgy tests indicate the chromite can be upgraded to 27% Cr2O3 utilizing gravity methods (Gossan Resources Limited, Annual Report, 1998).
