Chromite is single chromium mineral which is the most common and can be
operated. Chromite crystallizes in the initial stage of early magmatic phase as a
result of magmatic differentiation. There are the two types of economic importance
of chromium formation such as stratiform and alpine-type deposits. Nowadays, the
production of chromium was realized in certain countries, especially including South
Africa Republic. Turkey take places in the initial countries in production sought
in terms of quality of chrome resources. Existing chromium deposits as well as
uncovered areas waiting to be discovered in Turkey are very important.
Underground resources which ar change the fate of states and wars for the sake of
the past to the present going to depleted day by day.These resources will continue
to impact on the history of mankind in the future. The countries which protect their
