Tin Ore is an ore found commonly in upper layers. It can be smelted into Tin Ingots or turned into two Tin Dust using a MaceratorPulverizer, or Rock Crusher. In the Pulverizer, it has a 5% chance of also giving one piece of Pulverized Iron. When placed in an Industrial Grinder, in addition to giving 2 tin dust per ore, it also gives a tiny pile of iron and a tiny pile of Zinc Dust when using just water. Using a Sodium Persulfate Cell replaces the tiny pile of zinc with a full pile.

With IndustrialCraft2's ore generation, it is found on layers 0 to 40. To mine the ore, a Stone Pickaxe or better is required. The Direwolf20 Pack, MindCrack Pack, and Ultimate Pack are using the configurable ore generation of Thermal Expansion, which by default is configured to spawn tin at levels 20 to 55 in clusters around 7 in size.

Tin Ore is the source of Tin, which is used for crafting things such as RE Batteries and Empty Cells.
