1. Yes, at Trail, B.C., (by tlie Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., of Canada, Ltd.).
2. Quantity of copper refined in 1916-1918, as follows: In 1916, 966,000 pounds; in 1917, 7,804,755 pounds; in 1918, 7,617,339 pounds.
3. The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company reports that practically the entire production in 1918 was sold to the Imperial Munitions Board.

4 and 5. Refined copper is not enumerated as such in the Customs classification oi exports but is included with blister copper. It is probable that little, if any, refined copper was exported as the Imperial Munitions Board used the refined copper in Canada in shell manufacture and still have a considerable quantity on hand.
