Who We Are
Brazil Manganese Corporation (BMC) is a joint venture between Ferrometals BV and Cancana Resource Corporation to develop a high quality manganese resource in Rondonia, Brazil. The aim is to deliver a dependable supply of high quality manganese ore that will meet the needs of a growing domestic agricultural market as well as support Brazil’s steel and export industries.
Manganese is an essential micronutrient necessary for the healthy growth of certain crops, such as soybean. Unfortunately, in Brazil many of these crops are grown in areas depleted in manganese. By providing locally produced high quality manganese, BMC will play a significant role in increasing the longevity, security and health of the Brazilian agricultural industry.
The high quality of BMC manganese will also enhance the profitability of Brazil’s exports supporting agriculture, steel and new technology industries around the globe.
