The last recorded frame on each microfiche

Maps, plates, charts, etc., may be filmed at 
different reduction ratios. Those too large to be

beginning in the upper left hand corner, left to

required. The following diagrams illustrate the

(a) Total includeH 9800,000 allowed for productH not reported. 

The production of pig-iron given in the general table includes only that propor- 
tion of the output of Canadian blast furnaces credited to Canadian ores. There is an 
important production of pig-iron from imported ores (shown in the footnotes to the 
general table and in the chapter on iron and steel) ai.d the total value thereof in 1917 
was exceeded only by the production of coal, copper, and nickel. There is also a large 
production of aluminium from imported ores for which no value is included, in the 
general table of production. 

Exports and Imports. 

A very large portion of the mineral production of Canada is exported for con- 
sumption or refining outside of Canada. On the other hand considerable quantities 
of mine product.g, chiefly those which have been refined or subjected -to partial treat- 
ment, or in tus form of manufactured goods ready for consumption, are imported. 

The total value of the exports of products of the mine including direct mine pro- 
ducts and manufactures thereof in 1917 was $167,805,818 compared with $171,178,58? 
in 1916. This value includes for 1917 mine products to the value of $77,069,667 and 
manufactures valued at $90,736,151, as againot mine products valued at $80,755,461 
iind manufactures valued at $90,423,122 in 1916. 

Practically the whole of the Canadian production of copper, nickel, and silver is 
exported, also a very large proportion of the production of gold, asbestos, and mica. 
There are, as well, considerable exports of coal. These products alone contribute about 
90 per cent of the value of the mine products exported. Manufactured products 
exported consist chiefly of iron and steel goods, agricultural implements, aluminium, 
calcium carbide, acetate of lime, fertilizers, and coke. 

The United States is the chief destination of Canada's mine exports, about 77 per 
cent having been exported to that country during the fiscal year 1916-17 and about 
20 per cent to the United Kingdom. 

A great variety of mineral products, chiefly in the manufactured or semi-' 
factured condition, are annually imported into Canada. These imports increa. n 
value with great rapidity during the ten years preceding 1913. During the nexi iwo 
years, however, there was a falling off, but in 1916 the imports again increased to a 
value almost equal to that of 1913. The total value of these imports during the calen- 
dar year 1917 has greatly exceeded those of any previous year and amoimted to 
$353,660,555, as compared with a value of $256,346,726 in 1916; $146,465,610 in 1915- 
$181,675,667 in 1914, and $259,290,745 in 1913. 

It is perhaps significant that of the total value of these imports in 1917 over one- 
half was comprised in iron and steel goods and nearly 30 per cent in coal, coke, and 
petroleum.

Production by Provinces. 

A summary of the mineral production by provinces in ,Jlt! and 1917 is shown in 
tl»o accompanying tables in the first of which the total production in the several orov- 
iuc<>s and the percentages of each are given for the past three ears 

In cornparing the relative productions of the various provinces it should be 
remembered that Nova Scotia is not ^ redited with the large production of pig-iron and 
steel at Sydney and Sydney Mines, which is made almost entirely from imported iron 
ores and IS not naturally credited as (^ipadian mine product. Similarly a large pro- 
portion of the pig-iron production in Ontario is excluded from the total value, because
