titanium ore, ilmenite, valuable mineral, Chromite, Madagascar

Madagascar is believed to have abundant mineral reserves, although many have yet to be exploited. Chromite is the most valuable mineral being mined; it and graphite, mica, and semiprecious stones are the country’s principal mineral exports. Plans to extract bauxite, ilmenite (a titanium ore), and coal are being developed. Deposits of petroleum and natural gas were discovered offshore in 1980.
