Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 WE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Juno 17, 1 Kaiser Developing Only Small Part Coal Basin In 'Pass: 230 Square Miles f t POLLUTION-FREE WASH PLANT Kaiser Resources Lld.'s 530 million coal washing is then washed by wafer that is constantly recycled, and dried in a natural gas heated thermal plant, since natural gas adds few pollutants to the atmosphere. The picture, taken across the Elk River valley from the Kaiser operation, shows the wash plant building and storage silos below it, from which train cars are directly loaded. ___________ Aspirin Is the Registered Trado Mark of The Bayer Company, Limited, Aurora, Ontario The Kaiser Resources Ltd. coal mining operation is devel- oping only a small part of the 230 square mile Crows Nest coal basin, of the richest coal-bearing deposits in the world. By mid-1971 about to 000 people will live in the small area directly affected by the gi- ant Kaiser project, most of them depending directly or in- directly on tlie mine for their livelihood. At present Kaiser employs more than 900 people, with an annual payroll exceeding of which is spent in the Crowsnest Pass area. The development has created about 400 new mining jobs and at least as many service jobs in the district. In addition, it lias spurred other coal mining and industrial development that mil create or more addi- tional jobs in the next two or three years. Income in the Crowsnest dis- trict by 1975 will likely have been increased by at least million annually over the 1968 figures, and the 1968 trend that w people moving away from the 'Pass area has been per- manently reversed. Because Kaiser is exceeding- ly conscious of its public image, it has assisted in nu- merous local developments, belli welfare-oriented and rec- reation-Griented. As the local source of ex- treme wealth it is being tapped increasingly by local groups for financial aid for various pro- jects. Kaiser officials and a report from Hedlin Menzies and As- sociates, a Toronto-based econ- omics consulting firm say the company will pay about a tan in various taxes and gen- erate a further 27 cents a ton in income and other personal taxes of company employees. Company taxes include fed- eral corporate taxes of about million annually averaged over 15 years; million in provincial B.C. annual mining taxes; per year as a land use tax, based on 13 cents per ton of coal mined; per year in local property tax- es paid to communities; and per year in port taxes for Roberts Bank property own- ed by Kaiser. The company paid about ?6 million in taxes to the B.C. gov- ernment and million to the federal government in the two- year construction phase. The estimated total expendi- ture on goods and services in the Crowsnest area for 1970 is million, of which about million has been generated by Kaiser. The Hedlin Menzies report estimates that new families in the district will spend mil- lion annually on food, on housing aiid on auto- mobiles, thus generating polen- Fleelwoocl Basement Drop-In A portion of the basement in Fleetwood School will be used as a drop-in centre for young people this summer. The centre will be part of the parks and recreation's 1970 community summer program and will be used as a focal point for youth programs and activities in the southwestern and central portions of the city. The drop-in centre will be in operation from June 22 to Aug. 15th, approximately five days a week. It will be open from mid- afternoon until 11 p.m. and op- erated by two Alberta Service Corps members. Bridge Bids Over Budget A proposal for the awarding of a contract for renovations to the 9th St. bridge will be pre- sented to the next meeting of city council. The lowest bid received for the. job was about over the allocated by the city. When the work is completed this fall the bridge clearance will have been increased enough to allow large semi-trailer units to pass through. Some units have had trouble in the past with the trusses at the sides of the bridge, which cut the clearance at the edge, to about 11' tial new businesses. values have appreci- ated considerably. By about the end of 1971 in- vestment on long-term mort- gages and projects will include million in new housing con- struction, million in hospital and school construction and ?4 million in commercial develop- ments such as stores. During the next 10 years up to million will be spent by governments and industry on vastly increased electric power generation stations to serve the heavy new demands. Kaiser's annual expenditure in Canada on labor and mat- erials is now about million, and will increase. The first Japanese coal con- tract Kaiser won in 1968 spark- ed other coal and industrial concerns in Canada to work on the vast Japanese steel indus- try and other markets. More than 180 million tons of coal have so far been sold. At present, Kaiser has con- tracts to ship 75 million tons of ooal to Japan during the next 15 years; has large contracts with Sweden, Holland and South America; is negotiating con- tracts with eastern Canadian steel producers; will likely sell coal to its present Kaiser Steel Corporation in California.; and is seeking further markets. Cominco, a Canadian Pacific Railways subsidiary, has com- pleted a 30 million ton sale to Japan and is developing the Fording River area about 40 miles north of 'Kaiser's site; the Maclntyre Porcupine Mines in the Smoky River area of larthweslern Alberta has com- pleted a contract for another 30 million tons of coal for Japan; the Coieman Collieries holds a 15 million ton contract George Watson Re-Appointed George Watson has been ap- pointed as attendance officer (truant) for the 1970-71 school term. He will serve both the public and separate school districts in Lethbridge. Mr. Watson has served in ;his capacity since September, 1961. with Japan: and Carcnorc mines holds a five million ton coiilract with Japan. Additional contracts Ja- pan and other countries are still being negotiated. Ooal bound for Japan sells at to per ton. While all of the credit for these sales doesn't go to Kai- ser, they did result from its heavy investment in Canadian coal in 1968. The Japanese steel industry requires guaranteed supplies, and the only way this could be accomplished was by development of Kaiser's mas- sive strip-mining techniques. Kaiser also forced construc- tion of the Roberts Bank supcr- near Vancouver, the only Canadian port that can handle tile giant to ships carrying coal to Japan, and its needs for efficient all-Canadian transportation encouraged the CPR to develop its lughly-aulo- mated unit trains. Kaiser was also required in its dealings with Japan to de- velop sufficiently efficient min- ing systems that the traditional heavy federal subsidy for inter- national coal sales was un- necessary. The subsidy was about a ton on western Canadian coal. YOUR CHOICE OF 4 1968 PLYMOUTH FURY 1 V-8 auto, 4-dr Was Less 30% 653 2216B 1964 METEOR 6-cyi. standard, 4-door.
