SP ventured into Mining field about 2013/2014 where it started reclaiming chrome from old abandoned chrome waste dumps. SP would employ community members to hand pick chrome lumpies for sales. This process would create temporary employment for about 40 to 70 members of the community. Their temporary employment would endure for as long as the dump existed.

SP would screen the dump material and sell the chips and feed stock to various buyers who would put it through the spiral wash plants. In some instanc- es SP would enter into partnership with the owners of the spiral wash plants and share in the revenue.
