    1. Tin is extracted by roasting the mineral casseterite with carbon in a furnace to approximately 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. The next step involves leaching with acid or water solutions to remove impurities. Electrostatic or magnetic separation helps to remove any heavy metal impurities. Compared to the processes used in the past, today’s advanced technology allows the industry to produce 10 times more tin. General Kinematics’ vibratory equipment innovation has made them a leader in the production of mining equipment for more than 45 years. A great many of the challenges faced by miners can be solved with the use of top quality vibratory equipment. With a proven track record in 35 countries, General Kinematics is making their mark on the future of tin mining.
