The mining industry of Canada
has for several years been developed
to a point where it occupies a position of greatly increased importance in Canadian affairs being
second only to agriculture, and, in
addition, it is become an important
factor in the mineral production of
the world. During the first decade mining has made tremendous
progress throughout the Dominion.
Not only in British Columbia is
the mining industry expanding, but
Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and
Saskatchewan, are developing tremendous bodies of ore, building
mills, smelters and refineries, and
British Columbia must exert herself if she is to retain the proud title
of the "Mining Province." During
the year 1929 the mineral production of Canada was worth $100,-
672,040 exclusive of precious
metals. The weight of the product,
was 450,000 tons. During the
same year the aggregate value of
copper, nickel, lead, zinc and
cobalt exported from Canada
amounted to $84,532,775, and the
weights involved amounted to 385,
000 tons. This is a wonderful
showing for a country that was
regarded a few years ago as a
purely agriculture country. Figures
for 1930 are not available, but
they will be even higher as several
large mines increased their tonnage
last year and others, such as the
Flin Flon entered the producing
Another progressive step taken
last year in connection with mining
industry was the completion of a
copper refinery at Copper Cliff,
Ontario by the Ontario Refining
Co. Ltd. This refinery handles
copper from several large mines,
including the product of the Granby Company at Anyox. The
plant has a capacity of 120,
000 tons per annum. Early this
year will see the completion of a
second large and thoroughly up-to-
date copper refinery in Canada. It
is located at Montreal East and is
owned jointly by the Noranda
Ltd. and the Nicholls Copper Co.
New York. The first unit now
under construction will have a
capacity of 75,000 tons per year.
No longer is it necessary for the
big copper companies to send their
smelter product to the United
States for refining purposes to be
sent back into Canada at much
higher prices. Our fabricating
companies now buy the finished
product direct from the refineries,

Outlook For Silver Is
Becoming Brighter
There is nothing new to report
on the prospects of silver price
stabilization excepting the fact
that the neoessity of doing something about this dilemma of silver
is more widely realized today than
ever before and the agitation is
growing. The Senate has authorized President Hoover to set in
motion the necessary machinery to
produce a conference of interested
nations on the issue of silver price
re-establishment. This news re
suited in silver moving up several
points in price. It is approximate
ly five cents an ounce above its
historical low touch?d three weeks
ago. Current quotations are iu
the vicinity of 30 cents an ounce.
That price is below the cost of
production for a great many silver
mines. Forty cent silver would
probably maintain silver produc
tion at a normal level. It is below
normal today.
Silver might come back surpris
ingly quickly if certain construe
tive influences continue to work.
An agreement among the nations
which would increase the use of
silver for currency purposes, even
though it did not attempt a fixed
parity of the white metal with
gold would be instantly effective.
Larger domestic trade in India
as a result of the abandonment of
Ghandi's civil disobedience and
boycotting campaign would in
crease that country's silver requirements and stop some of the
exporting which has had such a
disastrous effect on the silver market. Peace prospects in India are
better today than at anytime in
years. Silver's prospects must
continue to dominate the economic
outlook until the crisis is removed.
It interests every foreign trading
country. Particularly it interests
Canada, sixth amongst the nations
in foreign trade and third as a
source of the world's supply of
silver—The Finnncial News.

Six leghorn cockerals were shipped recently from Nanaimo to the
Mooi River in Natal, South Africa,
on order from a breeder there. So

The mouth health crusade now
being conducted in the province has
been made possible largely by the
financial assistance offered by the
Canadian Life Insurance Officers'
Association. This is considered a
tribute to the work of the dental
practitioners in promoting the
health of the people. The crusade
has the assistance of Dr. Young,
Provincial Health Officer and the
Hon. J. Hinchliffe, Minister of
Education with the co-operation of
the health and service organizations.
In a letter received here from Dr.
Brown, Medical inspector of schools
in the Peace River district, he says
that in spite of hard times, he has
not, in the course of his visits,
come across a single instance of
malnutrition, or neglect, or shortage of clothing. He speaks highly
of the comfort of little schoolhouses

movement afoot which may mean a
20 per cent increase of silver within
the next 30 days. This is apart
from any action being taken in the

country. That there is even foundation for such a statement indicates
that the silver situation is strengthening.
