1World totals and estimated data are rounded to no more than three significant digits; may not add to totals shown.
2Includes data available through August 20, 2014. 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, Greece, Pakistan, Panama, and Peru 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 yearʼs production rather than for content of typical products.
5Metallurgical ore.
6Production of beneficiated ore as reported in Mineral Summary, Brasilia, Brazil, except where noted. Average content 43% Mn.-
7Reported by the International Manganese Institute.
8Includes manganiferous ore.

MANGANESE ORE: WORLD PRODUCTION, BY COUNTRY1, 2
 
9The International Manganese Institute estimated Chinaʼs manganese ore production, in gross weight and Mn content, respectively, to be,-
in metric tons, as follows: 2008-19,000,000 and 3,400,000; 2009-15,000,000 and 2,700,000; 2010-17,000,000 and 3,100,000;-
2011-23,000,000 and 4,140,000; and 2012-23,000,000 and 4,140,000.
10Calculated metal content includes allowance for assumed moisture content. Includes ore and sinter.
11Mostly oxide nodules; may include smaller quantities of direct-shipping carbonate and oxide ores for metallurgical and-
battery operations.
12Category represents the combined totals of Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Chile, C-te dʼIvoire, Egypt, Georgia, Hungary, Indonesia, Iran,-
Morocco, Namibia, Romania, Russia (concentrate), Sudan (manganese ore exports), Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam, and Zambia.
