Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, July 7, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HEKAID 3 Dividend Declared Crow Company By NANCY MILES Herald News Service .FERN1E Crows Nest In- dustries Limited, former major coal operator in the 'Pass area, and now industrially active only in wood manufacturing at Elko, has declared a dividend to its shareholders of one additional share for each 100 shares held June 15. Alternative of one per cent cash is optional to the shareholder. M. B. Pepper, company sec- retary, explains the purpose is to conserve working capital. He reports the board decision is to utilize all the cash the com- pany can spare from its wood production to develop other basic interests. Crows Nest Industries sale of coal and gas intersets to Kaiser Resources Ltd. in the huge north south Rocky Mountain valley it opened for initial coal development in 1897 represent only a fraction of its retained coal and gas holdings.
