(CP) Residents of this East Kootenay community are becoming increasingly concerned about a fire inside Cominco Ltd.'s lead and zinc mine which is causing sulphur dioxide fumes to drift for several miles. But Cominco and provincial government officials said there is no quick solution to the problem which is killing vegetation in the area of the mine. Frank Goodwin, manager of Cominco's operations here, said in a recent interview that the company is concerned about the problem, but can do little to solve it quickly. He said a .process similar to spontaneous combustion is taking place inside Cominco's Sullivan Mine, one of the world's largest zinc and lead mines. When mining began, huge underground rooms were formed as the ore was removed. The roofs of these rooms were held up by pillars of ore which the miners have started to remove in recent years because they contain valuable metals. "When one of these pillars is broken up, it might contain a million tons of ore and it takes two to three years to scrape all that out of the said Mr. Goodwin. 'That means a lot of ore is left lying around inside the mine and, when the air gets at it, the sulphides in it start oxidizing and give off heat to a point where combustion takes place. It's the actual ore that's burning." The hot ore is called hot muck in the mining business. The combination of sulphides and oxygen produces the sulphur dioxide gas. The current strike at the mine by the United Steelworkers has complicated the situation because no one now knows how expansive the underground fire has become. Many local residents said the columns of smoke or steam have become more noticeable since the strike started July 1. were closed when the bodies were found. An investigation is continuing. The victims were identified as Donald Weikum, 30, his wife, Barbara, 25, son Edward, 4, and daughter Julia, 2. A similar charge against a second man, James Curtis Nowlin, 42, of Chatsworth, was withdrawn by the crown. The crown declined an invitation from the judge to present its case pending the arrest of the accused. the Bohdan Harasymiw of University of Calgary. External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen will address the conference Sept. 6. The conference is attracting delegates from Britain, France, Spain, Switzerland, Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Austria, Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, South America, Australia. New Zealand, the United States and Canada. Interim transport accord reached EDMONTON (CP) An interim federal provincial agreement providing for million worth of transport facilities in northern Alberta was announced Thursday. The agreement, which involves a federal commitment of five million dollars in 1974-75, seeks to improve transportation access to remote communities and to areas with proven resource potential. The agreement includes cost-sharing of the upgrading of the MacKenzie and Fort McMurray highways, airport improvements at Lac la Biche and Rainbow Lake, and extension of access roads. The announcement was made jointly by Transport Minister Jean Marchand, Regional Economic Expansion Minister Don Jamieson, Alberta Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Don Getty, Industry Minister Fred Peacock, and Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne. Federal funds for development will be provided jointly by the ministry of transport and the department of regional economic expansion. The interim program will be followed by a four-year program based on the results of a joint transportation needs study, and will complete the first five year phase of the 10 year program announced at the western opportunities conference in 1973.

Cattlemen cautioned EDMONTON Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer said Thursday livestock producers must exercise extra caution in buying and selling strategies following implementation of the new feed grains policy. Noting .rapidly rising barley prices, Dr. Homer advised livestock feeders to check alternative sources when purchasing feed grain. Utilization of the Alberta grain exchange and direct purchase from farmers can alleviate handling and storage costs, he said. Until the feed grain market settles, livestock producers should keep well informed on the daily market before making deliveries of feeder cattle, he added.
