"Coal mining operations, on the surface and underground, in Newfoundland and the Maritimes. The emphasis is on modern machinery. Part 2 highlights steel manufacturing, foundry work in Montreal, Toronto and Ojibwa, where steel tubing, steel wire and structural steel are cast."


"Films for Business," Canadian Business 29 (April 1956): 74.
"This documentary illustrates how ore and coal are mined, followed by the step-by-step process of making coke and steel. Miners extract the ore in a continuous process, working half a mile beneath the surface. On top, huge blast furnaces show white-hot molten metal as it is poured and shaped into rails and plates. Manufacturing plants carry on the process to convert the metal into finished products - ships, structural steel and smaller items."
