Although manganese is not extensively worked in Canada, very large deposits of manganese ores are known in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
The ore occurs as crystalline pyrolusite and manganite in limestones, also as bog manganese.
Important deposits of the first-mentioned ore occur in New Brunswick, at Markhamville, King's county, and Jordan Mountains, Sussex county ; also at Tenny Cape, Hants county ; New Ross, Lunenburg county ; East River, Picton county all in Nova Scotia. Of the second class of ore the best known occurrence is that of Dawson Settlement, Albert county, New Brunswick.
