An example of studies by the Bureau of Mines to develop technology to tap domestic sources of critical minerals is presented. Ferrochromium containing 62.5 wt-pct cr and 9.1 wt-pct c was produced from a domestic chromite using an open-bath technique in an electric furnace. The high-carbon ferrochromium product in powder form was successfully tested in fusion welding processes for hardfacing.
