PUNT OF THE WEEK: Tin miner Afritin

WHAT IS IT? 

A tin miner with a working mine in Namibia, which it is developing further, and a project in South Africa. Listed on AIM, it was spun out of vanadium producer Bushveld Minerals in 2017.

WHAT'S THE LATEST?

Operations at its flagship Uis mine in Namibia restarted in mid-June after being halted because of coronavirus.

WHO BACKS IT?

Build UK boss Brendan Kerr is a shareholder, while Bushveld still owns almost 8 per cent.

WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST?

John Meyer, head of research at SP Angel, said tin is tipped as one of the metals set to benefit from the electric vehicle and renewables revolution.

And, he added, it is helped by its main project being based in Namibia, which is 'seen as a stable, mining-friendly country with good infrastructure'.

AND WHY YOU SHOULDN'T?

However, Meyer said: 'The small tin market can be upset by new entrants such as Myanmar which produces tin concentrates from alluvial projects.'

Tin deposits are also relatively small when compared with copper and most other metals.
