MINES AND MINERAL DEPOSITS OF CANADA

It is almost exactly two hundred years since the foundations of the mining and metallurgical industries in Canada were laid. There was nothing spectacular about this early start. It had to do with the most basic phases of these industries-the mining of coal and iron ore, and the manufacture of cast and wrought iron. At several points along the coast of Cape Breton island, coal seams may be seen outcropping quite conspicuously, and it is probable that they had been observed, and possibly worked in a small way, in very early times.
