Zambales region is well-known for its rich Nickel Laterite and Chromite desposits. Old metallurgical and refractory chromite mines in the 70's left behind economic chromite-rich tailings in Masinloc. Upgrade of these materials will result into economically marketable chromite sand. Low grade chromite can also be processed and upgraded for foreign markets like China.


Million Link Chrome Limited constructed a modern processing plant in Barangay Pinagrealan, Candelaria for the purpose of upgrading low grade chromite and tailings for overseas market. The processing plant can process up to thirty thousand tonnes of marketable chromite sand monthly.


Evaluation and assessments of Small Scale Mining Permit (SSMP's), Exploration Permits Areas (EP) and Mineral Processing Sharing Agreement (MPSA) License areas were conducted by CCILMMRC for Chromite within the entire Zambales Province. In areas and licenses with mineral potential, Memorandum of Agreements and Supply Agreements were signed to provide and supply low grade chromite for the mineral processing plant. 


Regional to semi-detailed geological surveys were also implemented by the technical staff of CCILMMRC in search of chromite and other base metals within the region.
