BC Metal is the historical metal production database for the Province of British Columbia. It contains mine attribute (BCMETAL_ID) and metal production (BCMETAL_PROD) tables for 1452 metal mines operating within the province between 1888 and 1988. Reports in PDF format are available with sorts by Mine ID, with production by year, Mine Name, and MINFILE Number. A report, sorted by Mine ID, displays production totals for each mine with ore mined and milled and the resulting commodities of gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, molybdenum, tungsten, nickel, tin, mercury and iron.

Production after 1988 can be found in the production data within the MINFILE database.
