Manganeze Ore
In the Indian continent, under different environmental conditions and in different geological processes manganese taken place but the sedimentary mode of formation far outweighed other methods such as supergene enrichment etc.. These manganese ores have been selectively exploited either for direct use or for sweetening the otherwise available phosphor-rich ores. Favorable geological and geomorphological settings, existing well connected rail and road links, easy amenability of ores to beneficiation and liberal Govt. policies make the exploitation of Indian manganese deposits practically a no risk proposition.

  • Uses & Specifications
  • Manganese ore is most important mineral for Iron and Steel metallurgy industry where used in ore form as well as ferro mangense. There are four different types of manganese ore, ferruginous manganese ore; silicious manganese ore, dioxide manganese ore, and manganiferrous iron ore is laid down by BIS vide specification no. IS: 11895- 2006 (Reaffirmed 2008). Main work of manganese is to improve strength, toughness, hardness and workability of steel, and it acts as a deoxidiser and desulphuriser and also helps in getting ingots free from blowholes. Metallurgy industry (Iron & Steel) is consuming about 90 to 95% of world production of manganese ore. Manganese is the key mineral and there is no satisfactory substitute of its in major applications. Manganese is the fourth most widely used metal after iron, aluminum and copper, finding its extensive use in the car and construction industry. The specifications of manganese ore by different industries are detailed below: In iron and steel industry, the BIS: 11281-2005(Reaffirmed 2008) specification is laid down for manganese ore. However, specifications based on the user industry indicate that normally manganese ore containing 28 to 35% Mn is used. Ore size generally varies from 10 to 40 mm.
