This book attempts to develop a general metallogenic model for tin in identifying the essential or relevant processes in tin ore formation. The methodological principle is based on an interplay between a background of basic petrogenetic concepts and a number of specific local and regional data on tin deposits and tin provinces.

Part 1 Introduction: general metallogenic concepts; the example tin; spatial and temporal distribution of tin ore deposits; global geochemical evolution of tin; geochemical specialization of tin granites. Part 2 Petrological framework: magmatic fractionation geochemical heritage; crystal-melt partitioning of tin; oxygen fugacity; solubility of cassiterite in silicic melts; melt-fluid partitioning of tin; hydrothermal solubility of casserite. Part 3 Magmatic enrichment of tin: Erzgebirge/Krusne Hory, Germany and USSR; Massif Central, France; Cornwall; Malaysia; Thailand; Nigeria; Nova Scotia, Canada; Cape Granite, South Africa; Snowy Mountains, Australia. Part 4 Hydrothermal redistribution: Tanjungpandan, Indonesia; Pilok, Thailand and Heryingyi, Burma; Ear Mountain, Alaska, USA; Takua Pa, Southern Thailand; Kinta Valley, Malaysia; Chacaltaya, Northern Bolivia; Chorolque, Southern Bolivia. Part 5 Regional element distribution patterns and the problem of pregranitic tin enrichments: general; Erzgebirge, Germany, and Izera Mountains, Poland; Bolivia; Kellapa Kampit, Belitung Island, Indonesia; model of tin ore formation - origin of tin granites; time-space framework; the magmatic system; the transitional magmatic-hydrothermal system; the hydrothermal system; synthesis.
