Mining Industry of Canada

Nature volume 140, page 542 (25 September 1937) | Download Citation



THE Department of Mines of the Dominion of Canada has issued as usual its report for the Fiscal Year ending March 31, 1936 (Ottawa: King's Printer, 1936. 25 cents). This is a valuable paper and deserves careful study, especially the opening pages signed by Charles Camsell, Deputy Minister of Mines, which give a brief review of the whole mining industry of Canada ; of course, the record of the gold industry is exceptionally important owing to the increased price of gold, but the base metals, copper, lead and zinc, also improved and played an important part in the increased value of the exports of base metals. This opening chapter is followed by fuller accounts of the various divisions included under mines, such as mineral resources, ore dressing and metallurgical, fuels and fuel testing, etc.
