Federal Tax Will Hurt Oil I OTTAWA (CP) The maj oil companies operating in Can ada told the Commons finan committee Tuesday that go teroment tax proposals coul spoil an otherwise rosy futur tor the petroleum industry. The Canadian Petroleum sociation said its potential ma kat in the United States is "in creasing but taj change plans would reduce centives to explore and grow. Pat M a h o n e y South) asked why the industry needs Incentives other than th great demand it is forecasting. A. H. Nielsen, CPA presiden said tax incentives are neede because petroleum developmeu is a high-risk development an the risks are getting greater with exploration off shore an ia the Arctic. He cited statistics to shov that only about one of 20 wel drilled in two decades foun fields of more than barrels of oil. In the Arctic, costs of drlllin well were four or five times as great as in the Edmonton area. In exploration, cost of geophysical crew would be about a month in th Arctic, compared with abou in the Edmonton area. INCENTIVES IN U.S. Further', be said, producers in the U.S. have incentives throng; depletion allowances greate than In Canada. The tax gap would widen if the governmen proposals were instituted. Mr. Mahoney said the CPA had emphasized the growing U.S. need for oil imports in the coming decade because r widening gap between demand and domestic supply. "If the oil ain't there, but here, what difference does 1 make what the U.S. depletion allowances Frank Mflir, chairman of the CPA tax committee, said Can- ada might miss out on the grow- ing U.S. market without incen- tives. Asked by Mr, Mahoney what other sources could fill the U.S. gap, Mr. Mair suggested Vene- zuela, the Pacific area, perhaps Australia. Mr. Mahoney observed that In Venezuela the effective tax on oil production is about 68 per cent. WILL TTAVE TO EXPAND Mr. Xelson said the Canadian oil and gas industries will have to expand to cash in on a U.S. gap between demand and do- mestic supply that amounts to a deficit of more than barre's this year and is ex- pected to doublo or triple bv 1880. He said tho reserves offshore and in tho Arctic will have to be cploited at higher investment costs to meet U.S. demand, be- eauso "wo do not think tho Al- berta tarsands are going to competitive in the coming dec ade." The testimony contrasted with evidence before the committee last week from Syncrude Can ada Ltd, that vast reserves in tha Alberta oilsands would be marginally viable for exploita- tion by the tax climate is right. CPA said it agrees with the aim of fairness in taxation sel in the government's tax white paper, but opposes the methods planned to achieve the aim. "A tax system for Canada should provide for the develop- ment of the nation rather than redistribution of opment of our country's re- sources will provide more social benefits." It said Canada is not ready for a capital gams tax. OPPOSE PROPOSALS Specifically, the CPA zeroed in on depletion deductions allowed oil and min- ing companies for disappear- ance of their resource as they mine both to the present and proposed systems. The present system desig- nates one-third of production profits tax free, under the pro- posed system, depletion allow- ances would be granted on pro- duction profits only if earned by of tax-free al- owance for every spent on exploration. The CPA proposed instead hat allowances should be either 20 per cent of gross ore deduction of production cx- penses-or a rate of allow- ance for every spent on ex- >Ioration. Further, it said eligible explo- ation costs to be considered hould be broadened to include of mineral rights and in- estment in plant on the well or mining site. The CPA urged abandonment several other government r o p o s a 1 s including one dividends from compa- ies would be fully taxes as per- >nal income, with credit to the hareholder for half the tax ac- ually paid by widely-held com- anies. Alberta Tops Billion Dollar Mark [ineral Production CALGARY (CP) Mining in Canada has come a long way since the early 18th century when "bog iron" was mined in the St. Maurice River region of Quebec and used for making pols, stoves and plows. The Mining Association of Cmada's latest figures show the nation's mineral production in 1968 was worth as Alberta became the second province to top the billioinlollar mark. Crude petroleum and natural gas boosted Alberta's 1968 min- eral output to sec- ond only to Ontario which reached the billion-dollar pla- teau in 1067. Canada exported worth of minerals in 1968 as it old First Show TORONTO (CP) Antique collectors can buy a piece of liistory at the first Canadian Antique Dealers Association show which opened Monday.

He said a "handful at least" of complaints have been re- ceived, "but I don't know if inough evidence exists to hold 'ublie hearings." Dr. Morton Shulman (NDP Toronto High Park) has de- manded public hearings to de- ermine whether the company is meeting government regula- tions. Dr. Shulman cited an article n Consumer Reports magazine laying the company had given 'less than satisfactory service."

The mining association says tho country's position as the world's leading nickel producer goes back to 11183 when blasting operations by Canadian Pacific Railway exposed evidence of mineral wealth in tiro Sudbury basin of Northern Ontario. 1NCO FOUNDED The nickel in an extensive copper ore body wa'i a nuisance until 1892 when research re- sulted in a nickei-copper separa- tion process and The Interna- tional Nickel Co. of Canada Ltd. was founded. In British Columbia, the Bar- kersville gold rush led to discov- eries of lead, rinc and silver in the K o o t e n a y region where Cominco Ltd. now has a large project at Trail. Interest in the Yukon erupted in 183G when George Washington Carmack, taking a tip from a friend, touched off the Klondike gold rush with the discovery of a few flakes of gold in Bonanza Creek. Noah and Henry Timmins fi- nanced one of the first silver mines at Cobalt, Ont., and used some of the profits to join the Porcupine gold rush in 1909. Their property became Hollin- ger Consolidated Gold Mines Ltd. and a townsite was named after them. Henry's son Jules used Hollinger capital to stimu- late iron ore development in Quebec and Labrador in the 1940s. The lure of gold brought de- velopers into northwestern Quebec. Noranda Mines Ltd. was formed through the efforts of such men as Toronto lawyer James Y. Murdoch and Nova Scotia-born prospector Edmund Henry Home who first looked for gold before finding copper.

NEW MINES OPEN Potash has become a major factor in the Saskatchewan economy. Seven mines were opened between 1962 and 1368, starting with International Min- erals and Chemical Corp. (Can- ada) Ltd. near Esterhazy. In the north, production spurted in the 1960s with the opening of Pine Point on Great Slave Lake. Tho Yukon benefits from a copper mine run by New Imperial Mines Ltd, and an hostos ir.hie run by Casslar As- bestos Ltd. Canada now is the world's leading producer of' nickel, zina and silver and second in ura- nium, molybdenum, asbestos, sulphur, potash, titanium, gyp- sum, selenium and tellurium. It is exceeded in total production only by tho U.S. and Russia. The U.S. is Canada's biggest mineral customer, taking 59.4 per cent of production in 1968, but Japan ranks as Canada's fastest growing mineral market. About 24.8 per cent of Can- ada's industrial labor force is directly or indirectly dependent on the mining industry, with more than persons di- rectly employed in exploration, extractive operations, smelting, refining and other related min- ing activities.
