Tin(Sn) is one of the most complex ore types to process, dependent on the ore deposit minerology and the percentage of impurities present. A testwork programme for tin processing would include determining the comminution characteristics, grain size and accessory minerals of the ore, and conducting classification, gravity, flotation and magnetic separation tests to determine highest recovery and gangue removal.

Tin has applications as a metal in alloys or as a coating, as well as in chemical compounds. It is known for its resistance to corrosion.
