The gold shipped from British Columbia by banks, and carried out of the country by miners, has not been less in value than 4½ millions sterling during the 10 years from 1862. Other exports than gold, namely, lumber (sawn wood), coal, furs, fish, fish oil, wool, cranberries, &c., average about 75,000l. per annum, and are yearly increasing in quantity and value. (See Gold Mining, page 74.)

The exports of coal from the Nanaimo coal mine, during the above ten years, has been 330,395 tons.

Several new coal mines are about to be opened and worked. (See Coal Mining, page 77.)
