in 190a it amounts to $10,069,757, an '""
crease over last year of $3,318,153, and
equivalent  to   a gain of 4y per  cenl, a
growth whieh is certainly a subject for
COUgrntulatton. The number ol producing mines has this last year also increased materially, for in 1899 the total number of mines shipping over 100 tons during the year were 43. while in 1900 some
60 mines shipped each over lco tons,
md 39 olher ttiities shipped vat ions
quantities of less than lco Ions. Of the
mines producing in 1S99, mosl of them
still remain iu the list lor 19ml, although
a lew have dropped OUt this year lor one

ent greater than in 1899, is made up
rom the Increased output ofthe older

imi.1 Production.
Cold—Tlie  gold  production of  the
province for llie year 1900, Including
both placer and lode gold, was worth
$4 73J,t(,5, "tl increase over 1899 of $529,
631. This Hgain "breaks the record" of
gild production in llritish Columbia,
and tliis year, as heretofore, does gold
take lirst place in our tables of production, The only decrease noted in the
preceding tables is iu the production of placer gold- and Ihis is due to the
heavy falling oil" in the Atlin district.
In 1899 the cream ofthe placer gold in
that district was skimmed off from the
shallower workings, leaving only the
deeper workings, which will, generally
speaking, require Id be worked by Ily—
diaulic methods. The necessary hydraulic plants nre being installed, but fiom
the iialuii of things could not he expected to make any very serious output
for the first yeur. Disregarding Ihe production of Atllu district during lhe past
two years,the remainder ofthe province
shows au Increase placet gold output in
so that next year good returns may be
expected. Dredging in llritish Columbia has, so far, been a failure, but many
companies have tried it and are still
trying it, confident of ultimate success.
The tiwr bottoms carry gold lu quantities greater thuu many of the successfully worked deposits of New Zealand and
elsewhere, but the conditions are differ-
in this province, the gold being in very
fine, Hal Hakes, haul to save, while the
rivers are rapid and large boulders aie
frequent. It has yet to he demonstrated that a dredger has been invented tliat
will successfully overcome these difficulties, but tbe prize offered for eu doing is
great enough to induce repealed attempts.
The output of lode gold for the year
lyim amounted to $3,453,381, being $595,-
808 greater than the previous year, am!
equivalent to an iucrease of ji per cenl.
This increase is due largely to the operation of gold properties in the Nelson
and Lillooet districts, as well as to the
increased tonnage of lhe Rossland gold-
copper properties and lo tlie opening up
of the gold-copper properties of lhe
Boundary district. The gold produced
ft om lode miuing for the year 1900 has
been obtained, approximately, as follows:
From direct smelting, combined with
coper, $2,583,905; from combined ainal
gamatiotl ami concentration, 1869,476.

ilver—Silver and lead are very closely associated in British Columhia, so
much so that over 90 per cent of the
illver production for iyix> Is derived from
silver-lend ores. The total amount of
silver  produced this year was 3,958,165
illceS) worth $2,309-200, an increase iu
lue over tSyq of $(345.492,01 equivalent
to 39 per cent. This iucrease has been
chiefly caused by the output of South
Kasl Kootenay, which this year has produced 960,411 ounces of silver, as against
33.516 ounces in 1899 The Slocan has
made an increased production of 230,151
ounces, largely accounted for by thu increased tounage of tbe district. Tlie
silver derived from copper-silver ores has
l>vei' increased by tiie output of the
Boundary district aud the Increased output of the coast districts, but has beeu
diminished by the temporary shutting
down ol the Halls mines, in Ihe Nelson
district, and lhe lesser silver values
found in the ores of the Kossland camp.
Trail Creek district.
Lead—The most notable leoture of the
yeais'a development has been ine in-
ctease in the production of lead. The
output for 1900 amounts lo 63,358,621
pounds, valued at $2,691,8^7, This is au
increase over the previous year of -ft, S13,
017, equivalent to 206 per cent. This
increase has beeu brought chiefly ahout
by the energetic development of two or
three mines in Fort Steele division,
although the lead producing districts,
except Aiuswoith, have shown a material increase iu production. The St oca 11
mining division lias heretofore always
held first place in the list of lend ore
producers, having an output in iSyy of
nlmoal 31,000,000 pounds, mid although
in 1899 it fell as low as 16,660,910 pounds,
ii h.is again increased in 1900 lo 19,565^

yeai of about 17 per cent, However, tbe j next 48 y
