  • Description

    CHROME MINING IN RHODESIA - WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR A LARGE PART OF THE UNITED STATES MARKET IN THE ORE - CONTINUES AS DEBATES RAGE BETWEEN THE NEW SALISBURY GOVERNMENT AND THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION AS TO WHETHER U.S. SHOULD CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN A CONSULATE IN RHODESIA.

    FOR SOME TIME NOW, RHODESIA'S CHROME MINES HAVE BEEN OUT OF BOUNDS TO PRESS AND CAMERAMEN AND THE ONLY FILM HAS BEEN OBTAINED THROUGH "SNEAK" SHOOTING. ALTHOUGH THE HILL-SIDE MINING OPERATIONS ARE EVIDENT, AS ARE THE PILES OF ORE - THERE SEEMS TO BE A LIMITATION ON THE NUMBERS OF PERSONNEL WORKING THE MINES AND NO LEADING IS SEEMING TO TAKE PLACE.

    IT IS ALSO REPORTED THAT, SHOULD THE U.S. LOSE THE RHODESIAN SOURCE OF CHROME ORE, IT MAY HAVE TO GO BEHIND IRON CURTAIN FOR ITS FUTURE SUPPLIES - A POSSIBILITY NOT WELL REGARDED BY MANY IN THE U.S.A.

    IT HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED THAT THE WHITE HOUSE IS PREPARING A "VERY INTENSIVE STUDY" OF THE PROBLEM IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
