The paper deals with a research project concerning building bricks made with chromite tailings material which mainly consists of SiO2 and MgO. Physical properties of the bricks made with the tailings were similar with the control bricks. The compressive strength increased up to 405 kg/cm(2) with an addition of 20% tailings in comparison with reference bricks having 380 kg/cm(2) on compressive strength.
