How many Tonnes of ore would one pull from the ground using renaissance age tools.

Asked January 5, 2018, 5:21 PM EST

I'm working on authoring, and I'm creating a sort of "story resource" folder to keep track of important locations, characters, et cetera.
The novel takes place on a foreign world that still utilizes renaissance period tools and weapons.
My question is, using these tools, how much ore would be pulled from a single mine annually, on average of course.
I need values, in tonnes, for these metals: Gold, Iron, Platinum, Aluminium, and Graphite.
If the same value applies to all, only provide one please.
