Seminarian Question

A seminarian due to be ordained a priest in the coming months, has written requesting information about the consecration of chalices in the usus antiquior.

He asks:

Was there a consecration of the chalice with chrism (as opposed to a simple blessing, as in the Novus Ordo), and if so, would someone kindly email a scan of the appropriate rites?

If you have any information on this, please use the comment box and email any scans to chalicequestion@gmail.com.
