Our Case
  • Molybdenum Ore Reserves IMOA

    A number of molybdenum-bearing minerals have been identified, but the only one of commercial significance is molybdenite (MoS 2) a natural molybdenum sulfide. In ore bodies, molybdenite is generally present in quantities from 0.01-0.25% and is often associated with the sulfide minerals of other metals, notably copper.

It is essential for plants and deficiencies can occur in brassicas, legumes, wheat, sunflowers and some other crops in many parts of the world, mainly on acid and sandy

  • Molybdenum: resource distribution and production

    In nature, molybdenum does not occur as a free metal, but rather in various oxidation states in minerals which contain 0.01%-0.25% molybdenum. Among these minerals, molybdenite is the only one that is suitable for industrial production. According to USGS, in 2013, world molybdenum resources were about 11,000,000 metric tonnes, and molybdenum mine production was
