|Abstract:There are a lot of manganese in the crust, widely used in iron and steel, metallurgy, electronics, chemical and other industries and sectors. Total manganese ore resources in the world is rich, but unevenly distributed. South Africa, Ukraine and Brazil's is the top three of the world's total ore resources. China's manganese resources are unevenly distributed and mainly to lean ore with an average grade difference, which is a major consumer of manganese resources are not met. In recent years, by conducting prospecting breakthrough strategic action, manganese ore to achieve a major breakthrough in Tongren is also expected to form a new manganese ore resource base. 2009-2012, the global manganese production overall upward trend, exploitation is generally stable, while the import side, South Africa also has surpassed Australia to become China's largest supplier of manganese ore. Manganese is still based on the current shortage of mineral resources, high dependence on foreign demand, the actual situation, on the basis of the above analysis, we propose Reflections recommendations.
