Molybdenum Recovery from Mineral Raw
Materials by Hydrometallurgical Methods
present review is focused on technological processes used in the industrial practice of
molybdenum production from raw materials, i.e. on pyro-metallurgical (oxidative roasting)
and hydrometallurgical methods. It was shown that the hydrometallurgical methods have the
advantages over the pyro-metallurgical ones: ecological safety and opportunities for
production of pure molybdenum salts owing to sorption on acrylic and styrene macroporous
anion exchangers with long-chained cross-linking agents.
