Tellurium production is limited mainly to that obtained from the treatment of electrolyte muds from copper refineries. However, there are several other sources from which the precious metal tellurides are potentially attractive. This work presents a review of the main localities in Sonora (México), where tellurides have been found. In addition, based upon the physical chemistry fundamentals for tellurium and precious metal tellurides. the aqueous extraction and recovery routes are disccused.
