The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 40
Chrome ore occurs in several parts of the province. It was discovered by Dr Hector in Martin's Bay and Milford Sound. From a deposit opened by Mr T. R. Hackett, in Aniseed Valley, Nelson, 5000 tons have been exported. Lately it has been found in the Shotover, but unfortunately in a place difficult of access, where the cost of transport would preclude its being profitably worked at present market price.
