Veins carrying manganese silicates largely in the form of the manganese garnet, spessartite, occur in the crystalline schists and gneisses of Carroll and Grayson Counties, Virginia, in the southern parts of the Galax and Independence quadrangles just north of the North Carolina State line. This brief paper includes a discussion of these manganese-bearing veins which are described in a report on the Geology and Mineral resources of the Great Gossan Lead district prepared by G. W. Stose and the writer for publication by the Virginia Geological Survey.
