A little Kachemak Bay chrome

An abandoned mine shaft staring out from a cliff near the McDonald Spit across Kachemak Bay contains its own story about chromite; a time when America needed it and Alaska happened to have it.
The abandoned shaft is what’s left of an ingenious system to get the chrome to waiting barges where it was shipped to plants in the United States. A rusting conveyor belt and rotting wood holding upper rock aloft are all that remains.
