Tin mining has been a major industry in Malaysia for several centuries. The country is one of the world's leading tin producers, with production reaching its peak in the 1980s before declining due to the depletion of easily accessible deposits and competition from other countries.

Tin mining in Malaysia is mainly concentrated in the state of Perak, which accounts for over 90% of the country's tin production. The main method of mining is open-cast or surface mining, which involves the removal of overlying soils and rocks to access the tin-bearing ore.

After the ore is mined, it is processed using a combination of gravity and flotation methods to separate the tin minerals from the gangue minerals. The concentrate is then smelted to produce tin metal.

Tin mining in Malaysia has faced a number of environmental and social issues, including land degradation, deforestation, and the displacement of local communities. Efforts have been made to address these issues through better regulation and sustainable mining practices.
