A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
Some personal background and history of the speaker. Evidence and instances of development in Canada and in Australia, the speaker's native land. The creation of a virtually new Empire in Northern Ontario. The significance of mining. The mining of iron ore, flux and coal, steel manufacture, and the mining of gold, silver and base metals that especially interests those in New and Old Ontario and along the borders in Quebec and Manitoba. The consequences to a nation which has natural resources of its own of importing such natural resources. Canada, like other nations, fighting hard to maintain her solvency, to assure the future of her young citizens and to keep their fathers out of the bread-line. Thanking Canada's mineral output very largely for Canada's solvency. Ways to better the results of that output, and the output itself. A discussion of coal mining in Nova Scotia and what it has meant for Canada. Some anecdotes about the nature of mining. The value of gold. The speaker's belief that we are only at the beginning of a huge gold mining revival throughout the Empire. The need for capital to develop our great auriferous resources. The need to press the fuller development of gold, coal, iron, and other natural resources.
