 Molybdenite - LoveToKnow 1911
It closely resembles graphite in appearance, but may readily be distinguished from this by its greater density (4.7) and by its behaviour before the blowpipe.
The name molybdenite is from the Greek µ6X03Sos, meaning lead or lead ore, with which graphite (fl-lead) and molybdenite were confused; the latter was distinguished by P. Hjelm, who in 1782 discovered the element molybdenum in this mineral.
Molybdenite occurs as disseminated scales in crystalline rocks - such as granite, gneiss, schist and marble - and also in quartz-veins.

 Roasting of molybdenite concentrates containing flotation oils - Patent 4523948
The ore is finely ground to release the molybdenite mineral which is then separated from the gangue by flotation using various types of flotation oils, e.g., pine oil, "vapor oil", etc., and other addition agents, a large portion of the oil (50-70%) generally remaining in the molybdenite concentrate.
Molybdenite concentrate may also be obtained as a byproduct of copper sulfide flotation wherein, during processing of the copper sulfide ore, a molybdenum-containing ore fraction is obtained from which a molybdenite concentrate is thereafter recovered by flotation.
The roasting of the molybdenite may be effected by increasing or decreasing the flow of air into the furnace depending on the temperatures desired at the various hearth levels.

 Conversion of molybdenite to molybdenum dioxide using petroleum or coal tar pitches - Patent 4687647
Molybdenite, MoS.sub.2, is completely converted into molybdenum dioxide, MoO.sub.2, by mixing MoS.sub.2 with petroleum or coal tar pitches and heating in air at 400.degree.-600.degree.
Molybdenite is usually converted to MoO.sub.3 by roasting with air, a process which requires a temperature in the range of 1100.degree.-1400.degree.
Typically, the molybdenite is produced by the concentration of molylybdenum ores and becomes available as a fine powder containing 54-55% Mo. The powdered molybdenite is mixed with the residual fuel oil, asphalt or pitch at a temperature above the softening point.

 All the latest from Molybdenite Lake
At Molybdenite Lake a ground magnetic survey was conducted over the frozen, unexplored lake and surrounding area, measuring about one by two kilometers.
The geology is depicted on a map titled Geology of Molybdenite Lake (P2406) undertaken by Zenon Mandziuk et al for the Ontario Geological Survey in 1980.
Topographic maps of the area and the Amax ground magnetic survey indicate the existence of strong northerly and northeasterly faults, the development of which, as at Molybdenite Lake, caused the fracturing for the quartz emplacements.

 Re-Os dating of molybdenite: new anlytical approaches using ICP-MS
Molybdenite has been or particular interest because it is a common ore mineral and is suitable for analysis by the Re-Os method due to relatively high concentration of both Re and Os.
As the method of isotope dilution (ID) is applied for accurate determination of isotope ratios in geochronological studies, the first attempts were made on the optimisation of Re and Os spike addition.
External calibration with correction of instrumental drift by monitoring one of the major isotopes of molybdenite was found to be most effective for the determination of the Re concentration.

 Separation of molybdenite from its mixture with other sulfide ores (US4425230)
Dithiocarbonic acid, trithiocarbonic acid, water soluble salts of dithiocarbonic acid or trithiocarbonic acid or mixtures thereof when contacted with a mixed sulfide ore effectively depresses copper and iron sulfides thereby permitting molybdenite to be recovered by froth flotation.
In copper concentrates produced by a flotation process, the organic collector reagents adhering to the surface of the copper and iron sulfides may be, and preferably are, stripped by conventional physical or chemical means prior to contacting the copper concentrate with the trithiocarbonate depressants of the invention.
However, the trithiocarbonates of the invention have been found to be effective depressants of copper and iron sulfides in concentrates which are not stripped prior to treatment with the depressant.

 Molybdenum Summary
Most chemists thought that molybdenite was a form of lead, a perception that was perpetuated when the name molybdenum was selected for the element.
Then in 1778, Carl Scheele recognized that molybdenite was a distinct ore of a new element.
In 1778 Carl Wilhelm Scheele was able to determine that molybdenum was separate from graphite and lead, and isolated the oxide of the metal from molybdenite.
