Molybdenum mineral

So far, no elemental (free) molybdenum has been found in nature. According to the atomic structure of molybdenum, it is determined to be a typical sulphur element. Of course, it also sometimes forms minerals in an oxidized state. The most common and stable state of molybdenum is the positive tetravalent valence MoS 2 . The oxidation state of molybdenum is composed of a pure hexavalent valence state Mo 6+ .
About 30 kinds of molybdenum minerals have been found in nature. According to its composition can be divided into sulfide minerals, oxidized minerals, molybdate and other salts.
Molybdenum-containing minerals are found all over the world, but only molybdenum ore is commercially valuable, accounting for more than 98% of domestic and foreign molybdenum mining. Chinese molybdenum iron, molybdenum, tungsten calcium ore, molybdenum small amounts of lead minerals, other mineral mining also has no value.
