The data recorded by Statistics in 2020 shows that although in 2019 manganese ore price fell to the bottom, the price in 2020 still gets increased to 4.5 U.S. dollars per metric ton unit CIF even under the impact of COVID-19. Manganese ore prices are forecast to remain at global prices by 2020 over the next two years, which is good news to manganese ore suppliers.
Besides, Justin Brown, managing director of Element 25said Manganese has the traditional end uses in steel, and that market is fairly stable". As people's demand for laptops and electric cars increases, the output of lithium batteries has also soared, and the most important element in lithium batteries is manganese.
Manganese ore after the beneficiation process is applied in many respects in our daily lives. Of annual manganese ore production, 90 percent is used in steelmaking, and the other 10 percent is used respectively in non-ferrous metallurgy, chemical industry, electronics, battery, agriculture, etc.
In the metallurgical industry, manganese ore is mostly used for manganese-forming ferroalloys and manganese metal. The former is used as deoxidizers or alloying element additives for steelmaking, and the latter is used to smelt certain special alloy steels and non-ferrous metal alloys. Manganese ore can also be used directly as an ingredient in steelmaking and ironmaking.
When smelting manganese-based iron alloys, the useful elements in manganese ore are manganese and iron. The level of manganese is the main indicator for measuring the quality of manganese ore. The iron content is required to have a certain ratio with the amount of manganese.
Phosphorus is the most harmful element in manganese ore. The phosphorus in steel reduces the impact of toughness. Although sulfur is also a harmful element, it has a better desulfurization effect during smelting, and sulfur is volatilized into sulfur dioxide or enters the slag in the form of calcium sulfide or manganese sulfide.

In the chemical industry, manganese ore is mainly used to prepare manganese dioxide, manganese sulfate, and potassium permanganate. It is also used to make manganese carbonate, manganese nitrate and manganese chloride.
Since most manganese ore is a fine-grained or fine-grained inlay, and there are a considerable number of high-phosphorus ore, high-iron ore, and symbiotic beneficial metals, it is very difficult to beneficiate.
At present, commonly used manganese ore beneficiation methods include physical beneficiation (washing and screening, gravity separation, strong magnetic separation, flotation separation, joint beneficiation), chemical beneficiation (leaching method) and fire enrichment, etc.
Washing is the use of hydraulic washing or additional mechanical scrubbing to separate the ore from the mud. Commonly used equipment includes washing sieves, cylinder washing machines and trough ore-washing machine.
The washing operation is often accompanied by screening, such as direct flushing on the vibrating screen or sifting the ore (clean ore) obtained by the washing machine to the vibrating screen. Screening is used as an independent operation to separate products of different sizes and grades for various purposes.
At present, the gravity separation is only used to beneficiate manganese ore with simple structure and coarse grain size and is especially suitable for manganese oxide ore with high density. Common methods include heavy media separation, jigging and tabling dressing.
It is essential to recover as much manganese as possible in the gravity concentration zone because its grinding cost is much lower than the manganese in the flotation process, and simple operations are more active.
Because of the simple operation, easy control and strong adaptability of magnetic separation can be used for dressing various manganese ore, and it has dominated the manganese ore dressing in recent years.
Gravity-magnetic separation plant of manganese ore mainly deals with leaching manganese oxide ore, using the jig to treat 30~3 mm of cleaned ore can obtain high-quality manganese-containing more than 40% of manganese. And then can be used as manganese powder of battery raw material.
The jigging tailings and less than 3 mm washed ore are ground to less than 1mm, and then being processed by strong magnetic separator. The manganese concentrate grade would be increased by 24% to 25%, and reaches to 36% to 40%.
Adopting strong magnetic-flotation desulfurization can directly obtain the integrated manganese concentrate product; the use of petroleum sodium sulfonate instead of oxidized paraffin soap as a collector can make the pulp be sorted at neutral and normal temperature, thus saving reagent consumption and energy consumption.
The enrichment of manganese ore by fire is another dressing method for high-phosphorus and high-iron manganese ore which is difficult to select. It is generally called the manganese-rich slag method.
The manganese-rich slag generally contains 35% to 45% Mn, Mn/Fe 12-38, P/Mn<0.002, and is a high-quality raw material to manganese-based alloy. Therefore, fire enrichment is also a promising method for mineral processing for low-manganese with high-phosphorus and high-iron.
Manganese ore also can be recovered by acid leaching for production of battery grade manganese dioxide for low-manganese ores. Leaching of manganese ore was carried out with diluted sulphuric acid in the presence of pyrite in the temperature range from 323 to 363 K.
After processed by hydraulic cone crusher, the smaller-sized manganese ore would be fed to grinding machine- ball mill. It can grind the ore to a relatively fine and uniform particle size, which lays a foundation for further magnetic separation of manganese ore.
It is indispensable grading equipment in the manganese ore beneficiation plant. Because by taking advantage of the natural settling characteristics of ore, a spiral classifier can effectively classify and separate the manganese ore size to help control the amount of grinding required.
The flexibility of flotation is relatively high. You can choose different reagents according to the type and grade of the ore. Although the entire process of froth flotation is expensive, it can extract higher-grade manganese ore.
The magnetic separator is a highly targeted magnetic separation device specially developed for the properties of manganese ore. The device not only has the advantages of small size, lightweight, high automation, simple and reasonable structure, but also has high magnetic separation efficiency and high output.

The granular media used for the study of soluble manganese removal included natural manganese oxide ore. The manganese oxide ore of South Africa origin obtained from Elkem Company (Marietta, OH) was used as the medium for soluble manganese removal. The raw manganese oxide ore sample was crushed and ground into particles of 1.0-0.425 mm (-No. 18 + No.40 USA sieve). The composition of the ore is given in Table 1.
Morgantown tap water was used without further treatment for the preparation of influents for the fixed bed column tests. All the other aqueous solutions were prepared using reagent-grade chemicals and deionized water.
Adsorption was conducted in a one-liter glass batch reactor filled with 800 ml solution containing 100 mg/L manganese. A sample of 50 gram fresh or regenerated manganese ore particles was placed in the batch reactor and the stirring speed was set at 300 rpm. At regularly timed intervals about 5 ml aliquot were drawn from the reactor and filtered. A 1 ml portion of the filtrate was used for analysis of soluble manganese. The rest of the filtrate was added back to the reactor. The concentration of soluble manganese was measured by using a Perkin-Elmer Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, Model 2380 (Norwalk, CT).
A synthesized feed water (influent) containing 100 mg/L Mn+ (unless otherwise noted) was prepared by diluting manganous sulfate stock solution in tap water of Morgantown, WV. The solution pH was adjusted using 1 N sulfuric acid and/or 1 N sodium hydroxide.
The column system consisted of three identical, 3.1 cm ID and 92 cm long adsorption columns connected in parallel. Each one was charged with 265 g manganese ore sample having size range of 100-170 m. The depth of the medium bed was 61 cm and the porosity of the bed was in the range of 0.44 to 0.48.
When oxidants were used, the samples of effluent were filtered through 0.2 m pore size ultrafilter (Fisher Scientific, PA) before being analyzed by AA. This was conducted in order to filter and separate the manganese oxide colloidal particles from the solution following the procedure suggested by Davies and Morgan (1988). The amount of manganese oxide in effluent was calculated by mass balance.
The results of experiments conducted in a one-liter reactor are illustrated in Figure 1. The adsorbents were natural manganese oxide ore and its regenerated forms. It can be seen that 17 to 30 percent of soluble manganese was removed in 90 minutes. Those values are converted to give the adsorption densities of 0.30 to 0.36 mg/g. Manganese removal by fresh manganese ore increased continuously and no equilibrium has been reached during the given adsorption time. The other three samples which represent regenerated manganese ores after adsorption, were nearly saturated after an hour. It appears that in spite of regeneration by potassium permanganate or air following adsorption, surfaces of the adsorbents have subjected to considerable reorganization and developed less active sites. As a result, the regenerated adsorbents had lower adsorption capacity than the fresh one.
The rate of Mn+ adsorption on manganese oxide ore was studied in a 1000 ml batch reactor. Several hours were needed for the adsorption to reach its equilibrium. The time for 50 percent of the adsorption density was on the order of 7 minutes. These granular adsorbents were effectively regenerated by oxidation using KMnO4. The adsorption of Mn+ on manganese ore was improved at higher temperature while it was not greatly affected by low temperature.
In a continuous column adsorption test, Mn+ was efficiently removed by fresh manganese ore. Complete manganese removal was reached over the first 8 hours of adsorption. The fresh manganese ore showed adsorption properties as good as or better than the MnO2-coated granular media such as sand and anthracite. Pretreatment of manganese oxide ore by potassium permanganate further increased its adsorption efficiency but regenerated adsorbents after adsorption showed lower adsorption capacity.
The effect of operating parameters were examined in the continuous column adsorption test. Adsorption increased with a decrease in influent Mn+ concentration. Influent pH had strong effect on Mn+ adsorption; adsorption increased with pH while adsorption was stopped and absorption occurred at pH 3.2.
The results have an important practical implication, that is, efficient manganese removal can be extended for desirable time simply by increasing the amount of adsorbents needed and no adjustment of pH is needed during the adsorption.

Since most manganese ore is fine-grained or fine-grained intercalation, and there are a considerable amount of high-phosphorus ore, high-iron ore and associated (associated) beneficial metals, it brings great difficulty to the selection. At present, the commonly used manganese ore beneficiation methods include physical beneficiation (washing and screening method, gravity beneficiation method, strong magnetic beneficiation method, flotation method, combined beneficiation method), chemical beneficiation (leaching method) and special beneficiation method (fire method enrichment method)
Ore washing mainly uses hydraulic washing or additional mechanical scrubbing to separate the ore from the mud. Common equipment includes ore washing screens, drum washing machines and trough washing machines. Usually, the ore washing operation is accompanied by the sieving operation, such as flushing water directly on the vibrating screen for cleaning or sending the ore (net ore) obtained by the washing machine to the vibrating screen for screening. Screening can be used as an independent operation to separate products of different particle sizes and grades for different purposes.
At present, the gravity separation method is only applicable to the separation of manganese ore with a simple structure and a coarse grain size, especially the manganese oxide ore with a higher density. Commonly used methods include heavy media beneficiation, jig beneficiation and shaker beneficiation.
The process of processing manganese oxide ore is generally crushing the ore to 6-0mm or 10-0mm, and then classifying, coarse grade particles are sent to jig sorting, and fine grade particles are sent to shaker for sorting.
Manganese mineral is a weak magnetic mineral (specific magnetic susceptibility coefficient X = 10 10-6 ~ 600 10-6cm3 / g). It can be used in high magnetic field magnetic separator with magnetic field intensity Ho = 800-1600kA / m (10000-20000oe). It is effectively recovered, and the manganese grade can be generally improved by 4% -10%. Because of its simple operation, easy control, and strong adaptability, the magnetic separation method is widely used for the separation of various manganese ore. In recent years, it has occupied an important position in the manganese ore beneficiation. Magnetic machines have also been successfully developed.
The weak magnetic separation is performed to obtain the ferromagnetic manganese concentrate and the weak magnetic separation tailings. The tailings are fed into a magnetic separator for strong magnetic separation, and the strong magnetic separation tailings and concentrates are obtained. To obtain heavy beneficiated manganese concentrates and tailings.
The strong magnetic separation-flotation method has good adaptability. The strong magnetic separator not only effectively removes slime, but also improves the grade of flotation. Comprehensive manganese concentrate products can be obtained directly by using strong magnetic-flotation desulfurization; using sodium petroleum sulfonate instead of oxidized paraffin soap as a collector can enable the pulp to be separated at neutral and normal temperature, saving drug consumption and energy consumption.
Generally, manganese leaching methods include direct leaching, roasting leaching and biological leaching. Among them, the direct leaching method includes a continuous disulfate method, a sulfur dioxide method, a ferrous sulfate method, and the like.
Taking the sulphur dioxide manganese leaching method as an example, the manganese ore is slurried, and the sulphur dioxide gas is passed through. The manganese oxide in the ore is converted into MnSO4 and MnS2O6. When lime milk is added to the filtrate, manganese hydroxide precipitates, and solid manganese hydroxide is obtained after filtration. This method is suitable for processing low-grade, embedded fine-grained manganese oxide ore.
The above are common manganese ore beneficiation methods. In actual production, most of the manganese carbonate ore beneficiation methods use strong magnetic beneficiation, heavy media beneficiation, and flotation. The manganese oxide ore is mainly based on the gravity separation method, and most of them adopt the washing-re-selection process or the washing-reduction roasting magnetic separation-re-selection process. Of course, it is often necessary to combine two or more ore dressing methods for difficult-to-dress manganese ores.
