Molybdenite (MoS2) is the most common commercial source of molybdenum. It is often associated with other sulphide minerals of other metals, most commonly copper. Molybdenum is typically concentrated through selective flotation. The molybdenite is converted into molybdic oxide through roasting in a multiple hearth furnace. The roasted molybdenite concentrates are generally known as ‘tech-oxide’. Molybdenum is also extracted through leaching and solvent extraction processing.
