Cassiterite mineral information and data

Cassiterite is a common and widespread mineral and is the main ore of tin. It forms in mid- to high-temperature hydrothermal veins through granite, granite pegmatites, and rhyolite, can occasionally be found in contact metamorphic deposits, and can also occur in large alluvial placer deposits. Important Cassiterite localities include in Germany ...

Cassiterite Facts - Softschools

A tin oxide mineral found in vein deposits, granitic rocks, pegmatites, areas of contact metamorphism and the altered zone of ore deposits is cassiterite. It is also given the name "stream tin" because it is also found in placer deposits where it is most widely mined ore of tin. Cassiterite is sometimes referred to as tinstone, and is the best-known tin mineral, and is an igneous or ...

LA-ICPMS U-Pb dating reveals cassiterite inheritance in ...

U-Pb data for 10 nearly concordant analyses of disseminated cassiterite from the same samples yield a 206Pb/238U age of 1838 ± 34 Ma. This is the first documented evidence of cassiterite inheritance in granitic magma. These data indicate the robust character of U-Pb isotope systematics in cassiterite, comparable to that in zircon.

As the purest and dominant mineral tin resource, cassiterite (SnO 2) has an invaluable role in the tin industry (Cao et al., 2020, Xu et al., 2015). Because cassiterite is brittle and easily broken, a mass of fine particles is inevitable produced during the crushing and grinding processes (Zhou et al., 2014).
