Six basic steps we take from rock to metal.

We start with tin stone and keep going until we have some beautiful Cornish Tin for us to make into our range of jewellery and giftware.

Cornish tin stamping mill
Step 1.
Rock is first crushed under iron shod stamps to a fine sand, releasing the grains of tin ore.

Shaking Table
Step 2. Waste sand is washed away from the heavier tin ore on the shaking table to give a black tin concentrate ready for the smelting process.
