Imports of manganese ore into the United States, 1868-1909, in long tons.
Page 282 - PRICES. The prices of iron-manganese alloys vary with the content of these metals. However, as the alloys are generally made with a fairly definite composition, the prices vary only within small limits. The following table shows the average range of prices for various iron-manganese alloys during 1908: Prices per long ton of iron-manganese alloys during 1908.
