Manganese is abundantly available in China, Brazil, Australia, and South Africa. Manganese ores are extracted to produce manganese in the form of ferromanganese and silicon-manganese alloys, which are used in iron and steel production. Manganese steel, otherwise called as manga-alloy contains 11 to14% of manganese and is used for rugged features.
By end-user industry, industrial sector is expected to be the fastest growing segment. Manganese is abundantly available in China, Brazil, Australia, and South Africa. Manganese ores are extracted to produce manganese in the form of ferromanganese and silicon-manganese alloys, which are used in iron and steel production. Manganese steel

How does the mining industry in South Africa attract
South Africa is part of the global economy and we are competing with the best in mining and have to take our game to the next levels or we'll have bid this important industry goodbye Manganese and zinc will continue to be the life line of the Northern Cape and I am confident that entrepreneurs like Daphne Mashile Nkosi will take this industry to next level of low cost production and technological advancement.
Manganese (Mn) is essential to iron and steel production by virtue of its sulfur-fixing, deoxidizing, and alloying properties. Steelmaking, including its ironmaking component, accounts for most domestic manganese demand, presently in the range of 85% to 90% of the total. Manganese ferroalloys, consisting of various grades of ferromanganese and silicomanganese, are used to
