Tiebaghi is a mine and former village in Kaala-Gomen, New Caledonia. Located on an ultramafic massif, it was the largest chromium mine in the world in 1941, producing about 54,000 tons per year.[1] During World War II it produced about 4400 tons of nickel per year. The mine is currently extensively mined by the French firm Eramet.[2]
