2nd School on Manganese Ferroalloy Production
27–28 June 2016, Mintek, Randburg

South Africa has the largest, land-based, Mn-ore reserves, exploited by a number of mining companies. Although the country is primarily an exporter of manganese-bearing ores, it has four smelter complexes beneficiating ore by producing high carbon ferromanganese, medium carbon ferromanganese, and silico-manganese.

In South Africa, four smelter complexes are operated by Metalloys and Assmang (ferromanganese producers), and Transalloys and Mogale Alloys (silicomanganese producers).

In order to support the smelters, and foster collaboration between researchers in the field, the SAIMM hosted in 2012, a School on Manganese Ferroalloy Production. The school was presented by Prof. Merete Tangstad, and co-workers.

The 2nd School on Manganese Ferroalloy Production will build on the collaboration between South Africa and Norway, and between role players within the South African manganese industry, by including a larger number of local participants. The focus of the event will be the identification of techno economic challenges faced by role players in the South African manganese industry, and finding ways to address these challenges.
