I think what you mean is that @t1 is a varchar variable that holds a table name. If it is, you need a dynamic sql like this:

DECLARE @t1 VARCHAR(100)
DECLARE @minRowId INT
DECLARE @sql NVARCHAR(1000)

SET @sql = N'SELECT @minRowId = MIN(RowId) FROM ' + @t1
EXEC sp_executesql @sql ,
     N'@minRowId INT OUTPUT', @minRowId OUTPUT

SELECT @minRowId
