Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THI IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, February 8, 1973 Coal industry rebirth suffers major setback GRANDE CACHE, Alta. (CP) - The spectacular rebirth of Alberta's coal industry ran into problems last week when growing pains surfaced in this mining commimity 230 miles northwest of Edmonton. Mclntyre Porcupine Mines Ltd. announced plans to lay off 148 miners at its nearby Smoky River plant to save money. It was estimated that the move would result in a population loss of 450 persons, about 10 per cent of the total. It was the first major setback Here are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART I: 1-a; 2-Poland, Hungary, Indonesia; 3-b; 4-c; 5-British Columbia. PART II: 1-d; 2-a; 3-c; 4-e; 5-b.

The industry slumped during the 1940s and 50s following the use of oil and natural gas resources. It started to boom again in the late 1960s when energy-hungry Japanese industry negotiated contracts to supply coking coal for voracious steel-making blast furnaces. Grande Cache is one of Alberta's newest towns, carved out of scenic wilderness, with new housing served by paved roads and underground utilities provided by injections from the provincial treasury. It was established Sept. 1, 1966. The layoits came as a shock to the residents, particularly the local of the United Steel Workers of America. WORKERS BITTER Many of the miners themselves, recruited in England, Germany, the Maritimes and from potash mines in Saskatchewan, were bitter after having been given verbal assurances of at least 15 years work when they were hired. Others, supporting statements of mismanagement, say the company has new and uncrated machinery gathering dust on the site and that contracts with Japan were negoiated at too low a price. One miner said initial con- tracts-the firm has orders for about 75 million tons over the next 15 years-were negotiated at between $13 and $15 a ton. He said that these recently were renegotiated to provide revenue of $18 a ton but that at the same time similar coal in the United States sells for $28 a ton. The Alberta government, in a review of energy royalties, last year, said that because of financial problems it would not increase the 10-cent-a-ton tax imposed on the coal industry. Heralded as one of the world's most advanced mining operations, the Grande Cache plant was built at an estimated cost of $47 million with modern machinery driving tunnels 12,-000 feet into the Rocky Mountains. The production is cleaned and processed and loaded into 100-car unit trains for shipment to Vancouver and export to Japan. MINE CLOSES The closure affected one of the two underground mines and did not involve the company's strip mining operation. Most townspeople feel they can survive the development provided there are no further layoffs. They say more secondary industry is required to broaden the local economic base. 1971 YEAR YOUR CAR BECAME OBSOLETE. MAZDA 1973. THE YEAR OF THE ROTARY.
