Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, April LETHBRIDGE Barons Oil, Ltd. keeps puttering along The chances of Barons Oil. Ltd. ever making the cover of Time Magazine are very slight indeed, unless that publication does a story on the mini- minors of the oil industry. With assets in 1973 of only Barons Oil is not quite in the same league as the giant of the industry Exxon Corp. whose jolly tiger was shown- on a cover of a recent issue of Time magazine, groaning under the weight of the world. The Rockefellers probably don't even know there is a Barons Oil, but to Ihe local shareholders of the company formed after an oil strike in the Barons area in 1950. it's important. Important enough for some major stockholders to have lent the company money when it needed enough capital to keep going. Alfred Cameron, former president of Barons Oil and one of the principals in the firm, told The Herald bigger oilmen think the company is a joke "They figured we'd be belly-up in six months, but hell, we just keep puttering along." The shareholders, who have never received one dividend cheque for their efforts, are out to prove that businessmen in ALFRED CAMERON WESTERN CANADA NEW BREEDS SALE MONDAY, APRIL 22.11a.m. Periled Bros.

Alberta Lethbridge, Alberta Southern Alberta can start a company and keep it going, even without the large amounts of capital that major companies have access to. The big oil companies take the cream and leave the skim milk for the small producers. Mr. Cameron says, adding that if Barons Oil ever did "hit it big" it would probably be bought out. But Mr. Cameron and associates expect big things from Barons Oil, which now is only a little more than a gleam in their eye. a telephone number, some small oil wells and oil leases and some mining claims in the Northwest Territories. "In the past 15-year period small companies have just been pushed out." Mr. Cameron says of the oil industry. Kxpecting the trend to concentration in the business. Barons Oil began to diversify into mining holdings about 10 years ago and although all its mines exist only in the imagination, company officials are hoping the claims they hold can bear fruit. "We feel Mr. Cameron says, "and we're just damn fools enough to make a go of it."
