Chrome Strategy

Our distributed chrome processing facilities target a diversified client base offering first and second tier chrome entities access to world class chrome beneficiation facilities. Clients are able to directly benefit from improved chrome efficiencies to reduce their operational unit costs. Jubilee benefits from a diversified base of clients with the ability to prioritise feed supplies based on market dynamics. Jubilee continues to reinvest into process development to offer clients best in class chrome efficiencies which would typically not be attainable as a single 2-tier chrome mining company including first main stream ultra fine grind application setting new efficiency standards.

What is chrome used for?

Chromite is a brown to black, iron – chromium oxide. Globally the world produces ~30Mt/yr of chromite, half of which is produced in South Africa (which hosts 75% of the world’s resources) with half again exported as a raw material to China to produce Ferrochrome which is the feedstock to produce stainless steel and other speciality alloys.
