Manganese Ore Testing Laboratory

What is Manganese Ore?

Manganese ore is an oxide mineral found in sedimentary rocks composed of manganese, iron and oxygen. In steel production, manganese ore is vital to create several essential alloys such as ferromanganese, silicomanganese and manganese metal. In addition to steel production, one can find manganese ore in battery cathodes and in fertilizer micronutrients. With such a wide variety of uses, it’s essential to perform manganese ore verification to ensure your materials will yield accurate results.
