The total value of the mineral production in Canada in 1910, according -to revised statistics now complete, was $106,823,623: a value slightly greater than the estimate of production
published on the 1st of March. Compared with the previous year's production of $91,831,441, that of 1910 shows an increase of $14,992,182, or 16 per cent, and is the largest increase that has been recorded in Canada's mineral production in any one
