These and other objects will more clearly appear when taken in conjunction with the following disclosure and the accompanying flow sheet. STATEMENT OF THE INVENTION. A process has been developed which provides for very high recovery of both molybdenum and copper values.
Molybdenum98 is the most abundant isotope, comprising % of all molybdenum. Molybdenum100 has a halflife of about 10 19 y and undergoes double beta decay into ruthenium100. Molybdenum isotopes with mass numbers from 111 to 117 all have halflives of approximately 150 ns.
