On the other hand, the complex sulfide ores found in underground deposits, such as those of Bolivia, require more compli ed mineral processing, often involving froth flotation, in order to produce a clean tin concentrate. Even then, Bolivian concentrates may average only 50 to 60 percent tin. Extraction and refining Smelting
A process for the direct recovery of tin values, as organo hydrocarbyl tin compounds, from reduced but unrefined tin ores and ore slags is described, wherein the ore or slag is reacted directly with a hydrocarbyl halide to form an organo hydrocarbyl tin compound which can then easily be separated from the tindepleted ore or slag residue.Cited by: 2
Mining in Bolivia has been a dominant feature of the Bolivian economy as well as Bolivian politics since 1557. Colonial era silver mining in Bolivia, particularly in Potos 237, played a critical role in the Spanish Empire and the global economy.Tin mining supplanted silver by the twentieth century and the central element of Bolivian mining, and wealthy tin barons played an important role in ...
The dry process is more frequently practised, due to the easy reducibility of the oxide and sulphide, together with the low meltingpoint of the metal, which renders it possible to effect a ready separation of the metal from the gangue and impurities. The extraction from ores in which the bismuth is present in the metallic condition may be accomplished by a simple liquation, or melting, in which the temperature is just sufficient to melt the bismuth,
Other methods for tin extraction include reduction hydrometallurgy which has been the subject of much investigation, previous work having been reviewed by Wright, supra. Various proposals have been made to extract tin from its ores by reduction of cassiterite to tin metal and then extracting the tin with aqueous inorganic acids.Cited by: 2
Oct 25, 2018 0183 32What are the extraction methods of tin from its ore Extraction of tin from its ore generally adopts gravity separation method, which is determined by the density of tin ore than the characteristics of paragenetic minerals. However, iron oxides such as magnetite and hematite are often associated with tin ores, so gravity separation is not possible.
Procedures for Metal Extraction. Concentration of Ores: Ores may be concentrated either by i Washing away the earthy materials in a stream of water in order to leave behind the heavier ores as is the case with tin ore or by ii Froth flotation where the ores are churned up with oil and water to form froth. This froth which contains the ore is skimmed off by blowing air.

The process of extracting metal ores buried deep underground is called Mining. The metal ores are found in the earths crust in varying abundance. The extraction of metals from ores is what allows us to use the minerals in the ground The ores are very different from the finished metals that we see in buildings and bridges.
