Chromite in Canada[edit]

A recent discovery in an area known as the "Ring-of Fire" located near Thunder Bay, Canada may be the largest source of Chromite yet to be discovered on Earth. by Government of Ontario, Canada. March 2010 --Stone (talk) 10:53, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Do we need a disambig page?[edit]

This article was moved to Chromite (mineral), but most uses of chromite according to Google refers to the mineral. Maybe the mineral page should be the main article under the name "chromite", with a hatnote for the compound?—Tetracube (talk) 19:02, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Moved it back, thanks for the hatnote. The article has been a mineral article for quite a while and the links here seem most (all?) mineral related. Vsmith (talk) 20:05, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
Oops, the original talk page wasn't moved back. Merging it now.—Tetracube (talk) 19:58, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Move done, restore comments lost in page move. Vsmith (talk) 22:02, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks!—Tetracube (talk) 22:03, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

How is it used?[edit]

The usage section does not tell me what it is used for. For example why did Germany need it during World War II? This is a good article about the actual substance and where it is found but says nothing about why it is, or is not, important. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 06:27, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
