Abstract(Summary)
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 year. The production per capita has also increased from $12.82 in 1909, to $14.26 in 1910, an advance of 11.2 per cent. The largest production per capita previously recorded was $13.35 in 1907. The year 1886 was the first year for which complete statistics of mineral production for the whole of Canada were collected by this Department, and the production that year was reported as $10,221,255, or about $2.23 per capita. In ten years the production had increased over 100 per cent, to $22,474,256, or $4.38 per capita, in 1896. At this time, the Yukon began to contribute largely to, thegold production, and, during the next five years, an increase of nearly 200 per cent is shown, the total reaching a value of $65,797,911, or $12.25 per capita in 1901. The next three years witnessed a slight falling off, but from 1904 the production again rapidly increased to its present high record.
