Monthly Mineral Production Survey, May 2020
Data from the Monthly Mineral Production Survey and the Monthly Survey of Smelters and Metal Refineries are now available for May.
Note to readers
The Monthly Mineral Production Survey estimates the outputs and inventories of some of Canada's leading minerals, including metallic and non-metallic minerals. This survey covers several commodities, including diamonds, gold, gypsum, potash, salt and silver.
The Monthly Survey of Smelters and Metal Refineries covers smelters and metal refineries for a variety of base metals, including copper, lead, nickel and zinc.
The Monthly Mineral Production Survey has been redesigned over the last couple of years and is now conducted within the Integrated Business Statistics Program, as part of the Minerals and Metals Production Statistics Program modernization initiative.
This release presents estimates that are not seasonally adjusted. Data for the two previous months are subject to revision based on late responses. Data for March and April 2020 have been revised with this release.
