THE concentration of tin in the tailing from Sullivan ore has been described by H. R. Banks, superintendent of the Sullivan concentrator, in a paper presented at the annual meeting of the B.C. Division of the Institute in October, 1941(1). The reduction of the concentrate in an electric furnace is the final step in the recovery of tin as a metal.
