1World totals and estimated data are rounded to no more than three significant digits; may not add to totals shown.
2Table includes data available through January 2, 2012. Data pertain to concentrates or comparable shipping product,
-except that in a few instances the best data available appear to be for crude ore, possibly after some upgrading.
3In addition to the countries listed, Cuba, Panama, and Philippines may have produced manganese ore and (or)-
manganiferous ore, but available information is inadequate to make reliable estimates of output levels.
4May be average content of each year-s production rather than for content of typical products.
5Metallurgical ore.
6Reported figure.
7Production of beneficiated ore as reported in Mineral Summary, Brasilia, Brazil. Average content 43% Mn. Contains-
imports from China and South Africa.
8Includes manganiferous ore.

9The International Manganese Institute estimated Chinese manganese ore production, in gross weight and Mn content,-
respectively, to be in metric tons, as follows: 2006-11,000,000 and 2,200,000; 2007-14,000,000 and 2,800,000;-
2008-19,000,000 and 3,400,000; 2009-15,000,000 and 2,700,000; and 2010-17,000,000 and 3,100,000.
10Calculated metal content includes allowance for assumed moisture content. Includes ore and sinter.
11Reported on a fiscal year-basis. Much of India-s production grades below 35% Mn; content averaged 38.3% Mn-
for fiscal years 2006-07 through 2010-11.
12Mostly oxide nodules; may include smaller quantities of direct-shipping carbonate and oxide ores for metallurgical-
and battery operations.
13Category represents the combined totals of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Burma, Chile, Colombia,-
Cote d-Ivoire, Egypt, Georgia, Hungary, Indonesia, Iran, Italy (from wastes), Morocco, Namibia, Romania,-
Russia (crude ore), Sudan, Thailand, Turkey, and Zambia.
