The primary objective of this project was to develop a process that would yield a salable product from the manganese tailings and to evaluate the economical gain that might be achieved from such a venture. From the nature of the tailings and early flotation research, it became apparent that selective flocculation and subsequent gathering of the manganese-oxide minerals into agglomerates was the key factor to be considered in the flotation testing.
