Biography / Administrative history
In 1884 Alfred Selwyn, the Director of the Geological Survey of Canada, organized a Section of Mines. This Section was staffed by mining engineers Eugène Coste and E.D. Ingall, both of whom were formally appointed as mining geologists on July 1, 1884. They were assisted by H.P.H. Brumell, a statistician. The Section conducted a variety of mining studies that included the collection of statistics of mineral production, the investigation of particular mineral industries and their markets, and the study of production and refining processes. The Section's results were published in Annual Reports. The work undertaken by this Section formed the impetus for the establishment of the Mines Branch in 1907. RG45 General Inventory
