Consolidation Coal Ltd. representatives and Blair- more council discuss plans this month for moving tons of the coal to Ontario Hydro on a test basis. Ron Zeigler, general superintendent of coal operations, and engineers Don Del Bosco and Craig Copping Herald- District informed council the firm is investigating three methods of hauling and loading the coal for shipment. They would not comment on two of the methods but said that as a last resort the coal would be brought from Grassy Mountain and dumped in the old West Canadian Collieries Mine yards, now owned by Scurry Rainbow, and would then be loaded into railway cars. Trains would leave bi- monthly, moving tons of raw coal to Ontario markets. The firm has no intention of opening the now-obsolete coal cleaning plant here. If the sample shipments are successful, other ways of getting the coal to the railhead would be sought A cleaning plant would be built at the mine site, they said. Council indicated concern over dust caused by coal haul- ing and loading would create. But mine officials said roads would be watered and the coal would be dampened before loading. It would be moved out of the town via the west end railway crossing just east of the Crowsnest Pass General Hospital. Consolidation Coal has also contacted a firm to do an im- pact study of the mining effects on wildlife, watersheds and ecology. SEALS AGAINST MOISTURE.
