Improve your manganese ore grade

Occurrence

Manganese (Mn) is abundant in the earth’s crust, and occurs in many minerals numbered in the hundreds, but only a few are deemed economic to process for commercial use. Pyrolusite (Manganese Oxide) MnO2 and Rhodochrosite (Manganese Carbonate) MnCO3 are the main minerals mined and processed to saleable products.

Usage

In terms of tonnage iron, aluminium and copper are the most used metals, and it is not widely known that manganese is number four making it an important metal indeed. The reason for the position in the metal league table is that about 90 % is used as part of the process...
