The agreement, covering the development of a single hydraulic mine, is the first to be signed under a multi- national licensing agreement signed in Moscow Nov. Ifi between Kaiser Resources, the Soviet Union, and Mitsui Mining Company Limited of Japan. Under the Moscow agreement, Kaiser Resources, the Soviet, Union and Mitsui Mining will com- bine their hydraulic coal min- ing technologies, market the combined technology inter- nationally to other producers, and share equally in royalties. Kaiser Resources currently operates North America's only hydraulic coal mine which utilizes a system developed with Mitsui. In hydraulic coal mining, coal is extracted from sloping underground seams by the force of high-pressure jets of water. Dislodged coal is then tran- sported in water through flumes to a plant where the water is separated from the coal and recycled in the mine. The hydraulic mine to be developed by Fording Coal will be the company's first un- derground coal mine. Fording Coal now operates a surface mine about 20 miles from Elkford or about 35 miles north of Kaiser Resources' surface and underground operations near Sparwood. "We are pleased that another Canadian company will be our first said Mr. Kaiser. "In our operations, we have found hydraulic mining to be more efficient than conventional un- derground mining and it. offers a safer and healthier environment for underground miners. "In addition, we believe that much of Western Canada's coal reserves are ideally suited to development by the hydraulic mining technique. This agreement serves as the foundation for what we hope will be future sub-licensing agreements to develop these reserves." Mr. Anderson said that Fording Coal would conduct an underground test program to determine the feasibility of hydraulic mining using the technology and, if successful, that production would com- mence within three to four years.
