Abstract

Although there are many uses for manganese today, none of them approaches its importance as a deoxidizing agent in the manufac­ture of steels. Without manganese the steelmaking in­dustry would be very seriously handicapped. The metal­lurgy of manganese has been developed around the high-grade ores, and unfortunately, our reserves of high-grade ores are very limited.
