Notes:
Although the U.S. uses between 40 and 50 percent of the world's tin, most tin comes from abroad. Alaska has a lot of tin and gold but it's difficult to mine because of the harsh climate. The U.S. Geological Survey has published "Tin Resources of Alaska" by Frank L. Hess as Bulletin 520-B. Tin in Alaska has been found on Buhner Creek, Seward paninsula, nearby Buck Creek, Cassiterite Creek, a tributary of Lost River, 100 miles northwest of Nome and elsewhere. Buck Creek has the most tin.
