To a it seems Cominco is everywhere you look in the Kootenays. Cominco Ltd. is currently in the midst of a strike which has closed its operations in three Kootenay Salmo and Trail. The Association of Commercial and Technical Employees representing the office and technical and the United Steelworkers of representing production are the unions involved. The Steelworkers' union itself is a large having members in' Canada and 1 million in North America. The strike has closed the Trail the world's largest zinc the HB mine at Salmo and the Sullivan mine at Kimberley. The Kimberley fertilizer plant is also affected. The HB mine produces lead and and the Sullivan mine iron and with smaller amounts of indium and tin. Taber District Council plans rural gas network Quiet after rain The Bavarian Mall in the centre of Kimberley's business district is not usually this deserted. Mine fire gives workers the willies B.C. At any other the fire would be considered out ot says a union official. There's not much that can be except to mine the says the operations manager.

The fire began in the spring of says the union leader. At one time high grade ore was leaving pillars of lower grade material with gravel backfilling between them. These pillars are being blasted and drilled he says. But there is a lot of iron in the Sullivan says Mr. Sacilotto. The oxidation of the and mining blasts provided enough heat to start the he says. He also says the fire makes the miners' job more hazar- dous. There have been burn and a provincial government mines inspector ordered a buddy system in the 'hot area. There are also scalable Mr Goodwin says the fire makes processing the ore more difficult The ore is lead and zinc b.ut becomes lead and zinc oxides when burned. It's more dif- ficult to process after burning because the concentrator was designed to handle sulphide ores. He also says the sulphur dioxide gas produced by the fire escaped through cracks and caved in killing trees on top of the mountain. The company has to clear the dead trees. Mr. Sacilotto says the USWA wants beefed up safe- ty clauses in its next contract. In addition to government and company the un- ion wants the right to bring in union staff members to inspect. The staff members would be experienced miners who have seen many other mines as he says. Jim public relations supervisor for Cominco in says the company has offered more paid safety inspection time to the union. There is also government mine he and points out Cominco has occasionally been fined for failing to meet mine inspectors' deadlines for safety improvements. Some safety measures can- not be quickly complied if they involve getting new equipment or changes in he said.
