Rock covers coal NATAL (1INS) One of the most important, yet lesser known aspects of removing; large amounts of coal from the Kaiser ReMimCcs Jjinutcd op oration near Sparwood in the; Rocy Mountains is removal of that which gave the mountains their name, rock How do you remove millions of fons of rock economically and whore do you put it when you have removed it to uncov- er the coal? It's done with drills. Without them none of the giant loaders, dragline dozers or other unils can move rock. Drills chew their way through as much as loO feet of solid rock to allow placing of explosives which shatter the rock and reduce it to manage- able size. KRL has five drills on the job, a die-sel-electric unit which can bore a hole nine end scven- eighths inches in diameter and four completely electrical units, each of which bores a hole inches in diameter. Each can penetrate the shale 1 and sandstone overburden at the KRL site at the rate of ap- i proximately a foot per minute. 5 The bils on the drills use either a steel tooth bil or 1 tungsten carbide Hpped bits, depending on what is encoun- tered, and may be forced down by using the weight of the drill, i i a factor which can exert as much as pounds of pres- quested gifts of maga- zines and games for the South- land Nursing Home, Leth- bridge.

Its theory is that a parallel line to the existing one is bet- ter lr.nd-u.se practice. Pilots are asking location in the Crowsnest Pass area of a remote-control communication facility to link radio-equipped aircraft with ground communi- cation systems. The drills turn at about to 60 revolutions a minute. Although the chips are blown r out of the driU hole by air pres- sure, a certain amount of, I water is fed into the hole, also, hi order to reduce dust. This is one area where the skill and knowledge of the driller plays a vita! role. Too little wafer and he has a dust problem, too much water and he has a .sludge which could ctog his drill bit. Good experienced drillers were not easy to come by when the KRL operations began, but Ihc company began training on the job ar.d this is now the main source of supply for dril- lers.
