The world's seventh largest undeveloped tin deposit is owned by the German-Australian tin company First Tin. Unlike its competitors, the advanced tin projects are located in secure mining areas. To fast-track the projects to a construction deadline in 2024, the company raised £20 million via its IPO in London on April 8, 2022. First Tin intends to take advantage of the emerging shortage in the tin market to bring its two advanced projects in Germany and Australia to production readiness by 2025. The company is well financed and has a solid shareholder base.
