§ Mr. HAYDN JONES
asked the Home Secretary if he will state, for each month from 1st October, 1909, to 30th October, 1910, the number of men employed at the Gwyn Gold Mines, Merioneth, the number of tons of ore treated with the Britten pans, the quantity of gold resulting, and the value of such gold?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I am unable to furnish my hon. Friend with monthly figures of output and persons employed at this mine, as the Statutory Returns to the Home Office are made for the whole year, and not for each month separately. The figures furnished for 1909 were as follows: Number of men employed, twelve; amount of gold ore obtained, three tons, containing 259 ounces of bar gold, and valued at £885. I have no particulars as to the amount of ore treated in the Britten pans.
