Mining Principle

How We Do It

The process of mining and smelting of tin is relatively simpler than the process required of other minerals (gold, copper nickel, iron ore, etc) and the steps consist as follow:

Removal of the overburden covering the tin ore and waste disposal at a proper designated site.

Extract and transfer the ore to a field processing plant for removal of the impurities of the tin ore using one of two available methods (or both), as follow:

Wet mining, where the ore is pushed into a slurry pit and then pumped directly to the field processing plant.

Dry mining, where the ore is transferred using vehicles (trucks) to the processing plant.

The field processing plant (known as the “washing plant”) uses high-pressure water to force the ore slurry on the sluice box where the waste material (silica) is then separated by gravity force from the tin ore.

The smelting process consist of drying the ore in the rotary dryer, mixing the dry ore with anthracite coal (to combine the carbon from the anthracite with the oxygen from the tin ore) and using a diesel-fueled furnace with approximately 1.400 degree Celsius heat power resulting in 99.93% Sn tin ingot, which will be labeled with the MSP Brand, stacked, strapped in one ton bundle and ready for export.

Throughout the entire process, from the field to the final ingot production, the sample of material will be analyzed and tested in laboratories located in each site to ensure standards are being maintained.
