It has been thought that "the legislature lost its collective balance and elevated gold mining to the first place in the economy. For the historian of gold this event was fortuitous, as the annual reports to the House of Assembly provide every kind of useful statistic, even though gold mining remained utterly peripheral to the province's economy."
