PHONE 327-1591 FOOT CIIIPEWYAN, Alia. (CP) Industry and govern- ment crows pressed on with their cleanup of the Athabasca River oil spill Sunday in face of a s c r i e s of technical prob- lems compounded, according to a biologist, by government lax- ity. R. D. Jakimchuk, president of an Edmonton conservation consulting service and a fp mer Canadian wildlife servic biologist, said it was "quit clear" that the Alberta govern msnt w a s caught unprepare whcn; a pipeline fractured week ago and dumped larg quantities of oil into the rivei The government, he saic should have had a contingenc plan including data on tl properties of the light cruc oil carried by the pipeline an Lhe special problems posed b an oil spill, into a fast-flowin river like the Athabasca. Mr. Jakimchuk said it ap pears "we got off lucky in a lo )f since ther likely will be only minor short term damage caused by th spill to wildlife in the river sys tern and in Lake Athabasca. Long-term effects of the spill however, remain an unknown A net set-back for the clean up operation came S u n d a when a DC-3 aircraft en rout here from Toronto with 15 bar rels of chemical preparations was forced to ditch in Lac L Ronge in northern Saskatch ewan. The forced landing in th lake was spotted luckily by AI tin Kidd, operations manage of Athabasca Airways of Princ Albert, who was flying ove Lac La Ronge in a pontoon equipped aircraft as tie DC- glided to the water. Mr. Kidd landed on the lake taxied to the crippled DC-3 am rescued pilot Gerry McLennan and his co-pilot. There was nc immediate word on how mud of the chemical agents, design ed to break down oil in water were salvaged from the DC-3 The downed aircraft was op- erated by Carl Mallord Air Services of Toronto. Meanwhile the federal de partment of northern develop- ment announced that it is as signing a task force to co-op- erate in the clean-up with th( Alberta Government and Grea! Canadian Oil Sands, the com pany whose pipeline fractured A national defence 'depart ment expert who worked on the oil spill of Hie tanker Arrow off the Nova Scotia coast also was being flown to Alberta. The broken pipeline, row re- paired and back in operation is the main one used by Great Canadian to pump synthetic crude oil from the Athabasca Tar Sands 250 miles northeast of Edmonton to markets in the south. The break dumped an undetermined amount of 01 .nto the Athabasca River and lie oil spread downstream 150 miles to where the river enters Lake Athabasca near Tort Chipewyan. Because the oil is a light crude produced by an extrac- tion process from sands in ivhieh it is impregnated, and lecause it is in a swiftly-flow- ng river, clean-up crews can make little use of the expe- ience gained in cleaning up spills of heavy crude in the oceans.

Plastic booms have been placed across the three main channels at the mouth of the river to catch the before more of it enters Lake Athabasca. Spot cleanup crews are ex- pected to stay at work along the river for about another month. Len Bland, Grost Canadian public relations officer, says tiie company plans to develop measures ID prevent a repeti- tion of the spill. The company says the full extent of the spill was not real- ized until two days after it oc- curred, when a comprehensive air survey was made. The spill caused a shutdown of the commercial fishing sea- son on Lake Athabasca just at the time when fish prices hai gone up because of mercur; pollution in other fishing area of Canada. Tlie Lake Athabasca com mcrcial fishery supported 2 fishermen and nine dockwork ers in this native community. Fears about the effects of thi spill on marshland waterfow breeding areas in the rive jor fish spawning area at the east c n d of Lake AthabascL appeared to have been allayei Sunday. Among the millions of bird: nesting in the delta are rare whopping cranes. Mr. Jakimchuk said the oil i confined to the main rivei channels and poses no itnmedi ate threat to the higher marsl areas.
