Chromite mining has started in the Tani District of Khost Province, according to the Department of Mines and Petroleum of Afghanistan.

Mohammad Sadiq Hamza, head of mines and petroleum in Khost, said on Sunday that the extraction of Chromite has started after a local company was handed a five-year contract.

“One ton of chromite has been set at 10,000 afghanis, and 21,500 tons of chromite will be extracted from this mine in five years, and the revenue of 215 million afghanis will be gained,” said Hamza.

Additionally, over 200 local people will have employment opportunities in the province.

Recently, the Ministry of Mines said that 650 mines had been evaluated and that contracts would be given to domestic and international businesses to begin mining operations.

According to Khost provincial officials, two more mines will also begin operating soon.

Khost’s deputy governor, Mawlavi Mohammad Anwar Din Parwar, stated, “In the coming days,” you will witness the opening of two more mines in Khost province.”

Chromite is the only chromium source used in the steel industry to harden steel, manufacture stainless steel, and form alloys. 

In addition, it is used in plating to produce a complex, beautiful surface and to prevent corrosion.
