There has been an increasing interest in the application of Mn(II) oxidizing microbes for Mn(II) containing waste water treatment, as well as biogenic Mn oxides for remediation of a number of toxic metals. Sambe hot spring in Shimane Prefecture, Japan is known for its Mn-rich spring water, and Mn oxide sediments are widely distributed over an area of 60m
