Cinovec Lithium / Tin Project

Tin has been mined in the Cinovec district from the 14th century. Modern UG mining ceased in 1972 in the central part of the Cinovec district, where near surface flat lying quartz-cassiterite-wolframite veins were mined UG with a shaft access. As the high grade ore was running out, the Czech State Company initiated an extensive UG exploration program southward of the Central Mine.
