The original purpose of this thesis was to determine the feasibility of producing standard-grade ferromanganese from the Cuban concentrates using an electric arc furnace. This purpose was later changed since it became necessary to study the adequacy of a laboratory electric arc furnace for comparability with commercial operations.

Since the original purpose of the investigation had been changed while the area of investigation had not, the research work was then continued with the purpose of collecting information on ferromanganese production as a background for anticipated future work in pyrochemical research at the Montana School of Mines.
