Ghana’s mining industry developed appreciably well in 2012. As expected, gold led the pack in performance by mineral type. According to the Gold Fields Mineral Survey, Ghana was the 8th leading producer of gold in the world as its output increased by 6% to 96.8 tones, regaining its 2010 position.
Ghana is also a major producer of bauxite, manganese and diamonds. The country has 23 large-scale mining companies producing gold, diamonds, bauxite and manganese, and, there are also over 300 registered small scale mining groups and 90 mine support service companies. Manganese is an important mineral resource in Ghana.
Ghana is one of the world's leading exporters of manganese. Of the 1.6 million metric tons of manganese ore produced in 2006, about 52%was shipped to Ukraine; 37%was shipped to China; and the remaining 184,000 t was exported to Norway.
The history of manganese ore production in Ghana dates back to 1914, when manganese ore was first discovered at Nsuta-Wassa. The mine is situated in the Western Region of Ghana approximately 70km by rail north of the regional capital and port of Takoradi. As part of the Ghana government’s privatization policy, the fully state-owned enterprise was divested in November 1995.
Most manganese mines are open pit; some are underground. Manganese ore can be mined by open pit quarrying or underground mining method according to ore deposit properties. The process of mining manganese involves blasting, crushing, grinding, screening and conveying the crushed ore to following concentration operation to get high grade manganese. The ore is then concentrated at or near the mine site, to increase the percentageof manganese oxide and niobium. The material is concentrated through wet gravity techniques, gravity, electrostatic and electromagnetic processes.
