Description

From abstract: This report summarizes the economic possibilities of the tin deposits of the Estado de Durango, Mexico. It describes in detail many deposits in the leading districts, which were examined in 1944, and briefly reviews some reports on undeveloped occurrences in the southern and western parts of the State. The general conclusion is that tin will continue to be produced by hand methods for many years, but probably at a decreasing rate, because the placer grounds which have always produced the greater part of the tin are faced with gradual exhaustion.
