Even at todays metal prices I can't believe there is viability in sourcing such a small quantity of spoil tin.Is it just a cover up to locate highly prized URANIUM which is a by product of Tin mining & to a lesser extent,Gold.-me thinks so, seeing as the Government want more Nuclear Power stations in the UK. Surely if money in tin ore then the redundant cornish mines would be re-opened & drained. There should be huge caution when dredging the seabed as coastal erosion will be the result, even taking into account 95% silt return. Cornish sea water won't be the beautiful aqua green it's famously known for & generates far more millions of pounds from tourism than silt mining will ever yield.

South Crofty is planned to be re-opened, they've been working on it for a while so I think there must be few quid in it now.
