Bulqizë chromium mine UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • Direct measurements from deep within the Bulqizë chromium mine in Albania have revealed large quantities of outgassing natural hydrogen, researchers report, suggesting the presence of a faulted reservoir of the gas deeply rooted in the surrounding ophiolite massif. 

  • The findings shed light on the geological contexts in which other natural hydrogen sources may be found. 

  • At least 200 tonnes of nearly pure hydrogen gas are released from the mine each year.
