Abstract

With the increasing importance of manganese in the metallurgical fields of today and tomorrow, ex­tensive work along the lines of its successful ex­ploitation has been accomplished by many investiga­tors. Since tie current world situation has shut off most of our supply of high-grade manganese ores from foreign sources, the low-grade domestic deposits have entered the fields of investigation very rapidly.
