Spanish term or phrase: TM finas
Hello all...
I need help for this...

It's part of a graph on Mining GDP. In parentheses, it says (Miles de TM finas)..

I know TM stands for Tonelada métrica, but does anyone know how to translate "Toneladas finas".

Thanks in advance

How and why COMIBOL came to be in the first place requires a brief description of Bolivian mining before the 1952 nationalization of the three largest mining companies of Patino, Hochschild, and Aramayo.1 In the decades prior to 1952, these mining firms accounted for approximately 70 percent of all Bolivian mineral exports by value. Under their leadership, the mining industry of Bolivia reached its historic peak in 1929 when it produced 49,191 fine metric tons of tin. By the 1930\'s, the established older mines of Bolivia began to encounter decreasing ore grades, increasing ore complexity, and greater inaccessibility of ores. Consequently, they experienced a drop in mine labor productivity, mill recovery, and tin export concentrates. All this gave rise to increasing costs of production immediately prior to World War II, precisely when world prices for minerals were at record lows.
