Chromite Mining Activity in Oman. Due to an upsurge in global demand for minerals especially for chromite from 2005 government. Of Oman issued concession to many private enterprises. So there was enormous mining activates during 2007-2008.
Abstract The chromite ores are used expansively for the making of sodium chromate.The study area is situated in the southern part of Muscat Oman. The fieldwork was carried out for detailed.
Ophiolite of Oman are famous world over and are favorite for exploring chromite which is a source of chromium that is used widely in steel nichrome and plating and painting industries.
Chromite: Approximately 30 million metric tons of chromite ore are located in Oman according to the Oman Chromite Company which reportedly produced almost 20000 metric tons in 2019. Oman recently began exporting metallurgical grade chromite ores in response to rising demand from China and shortages of ferrochrome worldwide.

Oman Chromite SAOG a publicly-traded firm which is partly owned by the wholly government-owned Mineral Development Oman (MDO) has announced that it has received eight new exploration licenses from the Public Authority for Mining (PAM) – a move that could help offset dwindling resources at its existing sites.
Copper ore is being mined in the northern Oman. The ore is processed into electrolytically refined copper cathodes for export. Gold and silver are produced as by-products for export. The Sultanate has also started mining chromite and exporting since early 80’s.
