Hi, my name is jeremy and a geologist, hence the simple question

What is the minimum feed size fraction for tin smelting. In other words, at what feed size causes the Cassiterite ore to vaporise and you lose the tin?

Hi Jeremy,

I do not think size matters much. Maybe 100 mesh. See the PDF here at movie.
