Luchia Photo Roberts Bank stockpile largest in the world NATAL (HNS) Negotiators for Kaiser resources are still in Japan seeking to set a new price for coal from its mine in this area. Vice president and general manager Harry Conger said that although there was no word as to the status of the negotiations, "there has been no indication that we should stop producing coal.1' Under terms of an interim price relief agreement, Kaiser was producing at a per ton rate of 518.65. The price in- crease applicable to coal pro- duced under two overlapping 'contracts was granted or a 15-month period which ended June 30. Original price was in the per on range. First contract signed hy Kai- ser in 1968 was for three mil- lion tons per year over 15 years for a total of 45 million tons. The second contract, negotiated in 1969, was for two million TOP HOUSE Intramural activities at Noble Cenlral School, Nobleford, were won by the Simon Fraser house. Team captains Wanda Luchia and John Davy display the hard-earned trophy. tuchia Photo Water must be better managed tons per year over the same period, giving a total of 75 million tons. A contract clause allowed Kaiser to deliver 10 per cent below the 75 million, equal to C7.5 million tons, or 10 per cent above, or 82.5 million. Mr. Conger said production is going well at he moment, although it still hasn't hit the five million tons per year rate. With eight days production lost last month because a break in the raw coal belt, production, hit tons roughly, the vice president said, 4.3 million tons per year if maintained. Although production is going well, getting it to Japan is an- other story. A Japan seaman's strike is preventing Eiiy Japan- ese ships being loaded at rob-, erts Bank. Mr. Conger said the stock- pile there, now over tons, is probably the largest stockpile of coal n the world. Only non-Japanese ships chart- ered by the Japan steel maters have been trimming the stock- pile. Only enough of them to meet the steel mills' immediate needs are being sent in. Getting it on board ship hasn't been the only problem. Freight rates for the original 45-million- ton contract are set for the life of the deal. But the freight rates, on the supplemental con- tract are good only for three years. A rate after that has not, been set yet with the CPR, only carrier available. The Kootenay and Elk Rail- road was considered a possible carrier when it was applying for a permit before the Cana- dian Transport Commiss i o n. And K and E's parent com- pany, Crowsnest Industries, had a letter of intent from Kaiser that it would ship the uncom- mitted tonnage, via K and E.
