Manganese is a solid and grey metal at normal pressure and temperature, easily oxidizes turning brown its surface, and if its react with acid like hydrochloric acid turn blue due to the reaction and the production of the chloride, like you can see in this picture on the left. Manganese is a silvery-gray metal resembling iron. It is hard and very brittle, difficult to fuse, but easy to oxidize. Manganese metal and its common ions are paramagnetic. The most important manganese ore is pyrolusite (MnO2). Other economically important manganese ores usually show a close spatial relation to the iron ores. Manganese is one of the transition metals with chemical symbol Mn and atomic number 25.
Nigeria has over 5,000,000 MT of Manganese ore deposit in Nigeria. They are known to occur in the following states in Nigeria Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Cross River, Kaduna, Plateau, Katsina, Kebbi and Nassarawa.
Demand for manganese is primarily driven by the steel industry which consumes 94% of the Manganese ore produced. Demand for steel is ever increasing due to increased rate of infrastructure growth in developing nations such as China and India. The manganese market is highly concentrated with limited global suppliers providing a natural pricing floor for manganese. Rising global crude steel production is driving up demand for manganese ore, especially reserves of high grade ore. China’s reported manganese reserves are limited and expected to last for less than 15 years at current production rates.
We export most Manganese to countries like China in large quantities, we strive to satisfy our interested buyers who usually like to secure steady source of supply of our Manganese products.
