Tin Ore in game.
Tin Block in game.

Tin is a metal resource added by IC² and generated as ore between layers 0 and 40, usually in groups of up to 6 blocks. It requires a stone pickaxe or better to mine.


These forms of tin are seen during ore processing:

These forms of tin are seen during metal shaping:


Although not quite as prevalent as copper, tin is still a staple material of IC². Note, however, that tin plates and item casings have mostly taken over the position ingots used to occupy in pre-experimental crafting recipes (as with most other metals).

Starting off, tin will mostly go towards crafting Grid RE Battery.pngRE Batteries and Grid Tin Cable.png Tin Cables. Later on, a fair amount will likely be used for Grid Universal Fluid Cell.png Universal Fluid Cells, Grid Electric Motor.png Electric Motors, Grid Mixed Metal Ingot.png Mixed Metal Ingots, and nuclear reactor components. (Don't forget about Grid Tin Can.png Tin Cans to conveniently store your food!)

Unsmelted tin can also be mixed with copper in a 3:1 ratio (copper:tin) to produce Grid Bronze Dust.png Bronze Dust.


To mine Tin Ore you need at least a stone pickaxe.

Tin... a multifunctional resource... use it to craft RE Batteries or some other stuff, which is made out of smooth metal.

This resource is soooo awesome!
