Scouter Paul Shewchuck brought 17 Cubs of the 14th Lethbridge Pack to Skookum Cub Village for four fun-pack- ed days. They camped, swam, rowed, fished and hiked while their physical needs were am- ply taken care of by the efforts of Scouters Bob Simmons, Bill Montgomery, Bob McColl and others.

The recrea- tion board was also instrumen- tal in having agreements sign- ed by the various Pass munici- pal bodies for the construction and operation of the Pass swimming pool. Grant Hall, chairman of the recreation board, stated the loss of the director came about for economic reasons. He stated that a! the end of the present year the Crowsnest Pass will no longer receive the special recreation grant that has been forthcoming in the past three years. Loss of this grant would mean that ap- proximately -would have to be raised by Pass mu- nicipalities at a cost of about 2 mills in addition to the cost of oporating local arenas and other recreation programs. The majority of councils felt they could not recommend this increase but agreed to a new recreation agreement to en- sure that organized recreation would still be available, but probably on a reduced scale. Mobile Cafe Given Okay SPARWOOD (IINS) At the regular meeting of the Spar- wood District Council, the Spanvood Development Com- pany presented a request to erect a mobile cafe. The unit would be located on property owned by t h e company in the Elk Valley. Size of the unit is 12 x 60 feet, and has seating capacity for 76 persons.

SPARWOOD (HNS) Con- struction is on the move again at the Fording Coal site in the Elk Valley. R. M. Porter, Ford- ing President, said production is still scheduled for early 19V2. He said most orders for major mining equipment have been placed and remaining orders are imminent. Design of the processing plant is well advanced and a 500-man construction camp is in operation. Land clearing and access road construction, not affected by the work stoppage, has continued through the sum- mer. An ecological study of the mining ar'ea and research on reclamation techniques has advanced simultaneously, said Mr. Porter. The P'ording Coal property is situated 40 miles north of Spar- wood. The company has a con- tract to supply the Japanese steel industry with three mil- lion tons of high quality coking coal per year. The project is being managed and operated by Cominco Ltd. which has a 40 per cent interest in the ven- ture with Canadian Pacific In- vestments Ltd. holding 60 per cent. Cost of bringing the coal pro- ject into production is esti- mated at. a major part of which will be spent on mining and processing equip- ment. A 60 cubic-yard dragline now on order from the east era United States will cost more than including shipping and on-sile assembly. The. big machine, weighing 600 tons, will stand ICO feet hifih from the base to the lop of its 805-foot boom. Operating radius is 290 feet and, with its CO cubic yard bucket, is rated to move cubic yards of material per year on a con- tinuous operating basis. Elec- trically powered, the dragline can dig 200 feet below its base and dump 120 feet above ground level. The coal property will be mined in two stages si- multaneously, said Mr. Porter. West of the Fording River, the coal deposit on the gentle slopes of Green Hill mountain will be mined by the dragline. East of the river, on the north end of Eagle Mountain, the Code Pit will be mined with a Appointed MILK RIVER (HNS) George Roberts will assume duties as the secretary trea- surer of the town of Milk River effective Aug. 16. The appointment of Mr. Rob- erts was made at a recently held special meeting of the town council and was confirm- ed to Mr. Roberts Aug. fi. Mr. Roberts will replace Miss Shirley McCoy. truck and shovel operation. Trucks will bo of 100 ton ca- pacity and the shovels will have 115 cubic yard buckets. Coal from both sides will be hauled to the processing plant on (he valley floor. Diversions of the Fording River, for several hundred feet, will provide a one hundred- acre lagoon to contain water borne tailings. Design calls for a closed circuit operation in which the waste water after settling out will be recirculated through the process plant and no water will be discharge into the river from the lagoon system. The lagoon will be con- tained by a natural height of land on one side and by an impervious-earth fill dam up to 70 feet in height. Con- struction of the dam will even- tually require about one mil- lion cubic yards most of which will be overburden from the Greenhill mining area. Other anti pollution mea- sures include a wide range of filters and scrubbers in the processing plant to prevent dust and other contaminants from reaching the atmosphere. Run-off from mining areas will be impounded before dis- charging into streams. The coal deposits on the Fording property run in seams wlu'ch range in thickness from 16 to 40 feet and average of 22 feet. The 15 year requirement of Ions of clean coal pet' year will involve uncover- ing and removing long tons of raw coal per year for processing. About 120 acres per year during the period of upt'raiiun will be disturbed. and the total area to be occu- pied by mining processing and tailings disposal will be about three square miles. The coal will be processed by a heavy media and separation and flotation plant having a capac- ity to provide 10.000 tons per day of product coal. About tons-per-ycar of a middling coal byproduct will be recoverable fci' possible fu- ture use of thermal power gen- eration. The coking coal will be shipped in 100 car unitized trains via a 34-mile railway spur now being constructed by Canadian Pacific Rail way from Sparwood to the Fording plant. The terminus is at Rob- erts Bank on the west coast, where stockpiling and loading facilities are provided by Westshore Terminals Ltd.
