 Mining

ETI KROM currently has 79 chrome ore mines in Turkey. The majority of ETI KROM`s mines are located in Elazig and the others are in Kayseri, Mugla, Hatay, Diyarbakir, Adana and Malatya regions. The total proven and probable reserves are about 100 million MT and 150 million MT, respectively. 
 
Most of the chrome ore production is from the underground mines. In these underground mines, ETI KROM depends heavily on room-and-pillar mining, usually with low-angle adits connecting to a horizontal access level. Narrow seams limit the scope for mechanization, so blasting relies on hand-held pneumatic jackleg drilling. The ore is mined either up-dip or down-dip in rooms approximately 20 m wide, with the roof supported by either ore or concrete pillars.

By using recent technology and new methods of mining, ETI KROM is able to sustainably produce a high quantity of lumpy chrome ore regardless of seasonal conditions. ETI KROM is the only major chrome ore producer in Turkey that can produce year around. Currently, chrome ore mining is mainly carried out in Elazig and Hatay. 

To ensure that the final product`s quality is consistent and homogeneous according to given specifications, samples are regularly drawn during production and transportation. With new equipment in its laboratory, ETI KROM rigorously controls the quality of its chrome ore from the mine to its own ferrochrome furnaces and finally, to the final customer.

ETI KROM has a concentrator, jig facilities, pelletizing plant, mobile crushing and screening equipment in Elazig.
