Low-grade manganese ore containing 39.5% MnO2, 3.52% MnO, 24.2% Fe, 7.53% SiO2 and & 43% Al2O3 was reduced by coke oven gas at temperature range of 350°C to 550°C. The reduced ore was leached with dilute nitric acid to obtain a liquor containing about 210 gm of manganese per litre. This manganese nitrate solution was decomposed at about 190°C, to give battery active manganese dioxide and nitrogen tetroxide, the latter on passing through water in presence of air was recovered as nitric acid. More than 95% of manganese dioxide suitable for dry-cell, chemical and other industries. About 95% of nitric acid used in leaching is recovered in suitable strength for recycling. (S.R.
