There are more than 800 mines across Canada and the country ranks amongst the leading producers of potash and uranium in the world. Canada is also one of the top five producers of nickel and diamonds in the world. The mining industry is a major contributor to Canada's economy, accounting for nearly five percent of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

This research analyzes the metals and mining industry in Canada in its research report Canadian Metals & Mining Industry. The report begins with an introduction to the industry in which we define the industry, provide a background to the metals and mining sector in Canada, look at the geology of the country, and then move on to analyzing the industry through an industry profile, industry structure, industry segments, competitive landscape, mineral production in Canada, import/export scenario and an analysis of the industry infrastructure.

The report also analyzes Canada's mineral reserves.

We analyze the metal mines in Canada through a distribution of metals mines, classification of the mines, looking at metal producing facilities and the structure of metallic commodities industry segmented into ferrous metals, precious metals and other base metals.

Regulatory framework for the mining industry is looked at followed by environmental issues that are affecting the Canadian metals and mining industry.

Mining commodities that are analyzed in Aruvian Research's report include alumina and bauxite, aluminum, asbestos, cement, coal, crude oil, diamond, gold, iron, lead & zinc, natural gas, nickel, platinum group metals (PGM), potash, silver, titanium and uranium.

The report also includes an analysis of Canada's mineral extraction industry and Canada's mineral processing and refining industry. Over 25 of the major mines in Canada are also analyzed in the report.

Major industry players are analyzed in the report through corporate profile, an analysis of their business segments, a financial analysis and a SWOT analysis. The major players analyzed in the report include Alcoa Inc. ArcelorMittal, Rio Tinto, Teck Resources and Vale SA.
