Manganese carbonate is a water-insoluble source of manganese that can be converted into other manganese compounds such as manganese oxide by calcination. Manganese carbonate occurs naturally as mineral rhodochrosite. It is available in variety of colors such as pink, red, grey, yellow, and brown. In terms of demand, agrochemicals accounts for major share of the global manganese carbonate market. Additionally, manganese carbonate can be used in other value-added applications such as glaze colorants. It can also be employed as a chemical intermediate for synthesis of other chemical compounds. Furthermore, manganese carbonate can be used as a hematinic in the medical industry and as supplement in the food industry.
Manganese carbonate ore deposits are commonly found in South Africa, China, Gabon, Ghana, and Brazil. Obtained through underground excavation, these deposits are subjected to the beneficiation technology in order to remove undesirable impurities. The Xialei manganese mine at Daxin, Guangxi, China; and Nsuta manganese mine, Tarkwa, Western Region, Ghana are two of the largest deposits of manganese carbonate ore in the world. The Nsuta manganese mine is owned and operated by Ghana Manganese Company Ltd. (GMC). Majority of manganese carbonate ore from the Nsuta manganese mine is exported to Ukraine, China, and Norway. CITIC Dameng Holdings Limited, an investment holding company, owns and operates the Xialei manganese mine.
