Abstract : An unusually high fixed carbon was found in Grade I Climax molybdenite. This carbon was successfully removed by roasting in wet hydrogen at 800 C. The roasting process also made a contained iron fraction amenable to further removal by hydrochloric acid leaching. A substantial quantity of molybdenum oxide soluble in acetone was found after acid leaching and was presumed to be ''Molybdenum Blue'' so the molybdenite was acetone leached and dried. Analyses on molybdenite processing are imcomplete at this time and will be included in the next quarterly report. (Author)
