|When low grade manganiferous material (-65 mesh) obtained from Andhra Pradesh and Goa, India was subjected to leaching experiments , an efficiency of 70 to 85 % resulted,using an Arthrobacter species. The inoculum could be best cultivated in enriched soil extract - manganese medium and percolating columns with filtration were used for a period of 14 days. The optimum conditions for maximum leaching were worked out and the operation was found to be economically feasible on a large scale, when the adsorbed manganese was quantitatively precipitated with lime, Under the same conditions, other heterotrophic bacteria belonging to the genera Bacillus and Pseudomonas, isolated from fresh water pipeline deposits alongwith the predominant Arthrobacter species tested above, took upto 90 days to carry out the leaching of manganese,
