The element rhenium is known to form only one
extremely rare mineral dzhezkazganite. Much of
the rhenium in nature occurs in small quantities,
usually in the parts per million range substituting
for molybdenum which is a chemically
similar element. An investigation was carried out
to determine the amount of rhenium in some
molybdenites of Tasmanian origin.
