Malaysia Smelting mining its own business

World's third-largest refined tin maker in bold experiment to convert lead smelting facility as it plans to increase its own smelter input.

Mr Yong is also keen to see MSC extract more value by reworking its mine tailings - a far less costly exercise which could pay off handsomely given the robust demand for the tin tailings.
