Abstract

"This is the history of an attempt to produce from a pyrolusite ore, a material sufficiently rich in manganese to be of value in the various industries such as the making of speigeleisen and ferro-manganese, the glass manufacturing, and the chemical industries. The greater part of the manganese used in the United States comes from Brazil, India and Russia. Our American ores are, in general, low grade and requires various preliminary concentration to fit them for use. Although we possess in this country a great deal of manganese ore, which could be put into suitable condition for the market, there has, up to this time, been little done with these ores"--page 1.
