    I remember in the early 90's working around huge in ground chemical tanks used in chrome plating printing cylinders. The chrome powder or flakes (forget which wasn't my job to do it) was dumped into those tanks as needed.

    Chrome is an interesting one. There are several deposits in the US, but very few are mined because of lower import prices in other countries like Pakistan. I have found several smaller deposits (a couple thousand tons at most) in Montana that were mined in the early 1950's when I was doing a lot of gold prospecting. If someone crushed the ore and ran it down a gravity spiral separator they could concentrate the chromium content and sell it to a refiner. If they had the proper smelting operation they could refine it into ferrochrome with an arc smelter, or refine the chomium itself with various chemicals. I may do that eventually several years down the road.
