Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1974 LETHBRlDOe HERALD CP Rail to test dust control The second phase of an industry-government coal dust control test program is scheduled to get under way later this month along the CP Rail main line through CP Rail says. A technical committee which includes CP Fording Coal Kaiser Resources Ltd. and the federal Environment Protection Service was organized in February and has been directing tests since April 1 aimed at preventing the blowing of coal dust from trains. In a progress report the committee says its preliminary tests indicate that coupled with adequate load may represent a feasible solution. During the first phase of the committee studied several including profile shape of the coal load within the the process of load settling during the first part of the train and the effectiveness of several chemical sprays in holding down coal dust. Designated trains were sprayed either at the mines' loadout stations or at Fort some 100 miles to determine the effect of the natural settling of coal on the treated surfaces. The committee has selected the most promising chemical products to be evaluated comprehensively during the second test phase. Studies will also be continued on spraying load and spraying locations.

Farmers need knowledge of law Knowledge of the law is vital if farmers expect to get fair compensation from oil companies wanting to drill on their says Alberta's farmer's advocate. Helmut Entrup of Edmonton told The Herald Monday farmers can't stop oil companies from drilling on their land but they can get a fair settlement for that right. Under the Law of Imminent oil companies have more rights than farmers regarding land that is suspected of containing petroleum products. Mr. Entrup said the farmer owns only the surface rights to his land A crown lease to the oil companies gives the companies rights to all minerals under the surface. The contracting arrangement used to gain access to land for drilling purposes puts the oil company in the most favorable said Mr Entrup Farmers should know this position because more than wells will be drilled in the Brooks area soon. And Southern Alberta is rich in shallow gas property all oil companies are going he said. When the man seeking drilling rights from farmers he hands a contract to the farmer. The farmer is given 48 if he to study the contract. If the farmer can try to negotiate with the oil company. But when the contract is returned to the oil it is like an offer from the farmer at the figures quoted in the contract. All it takes to make the contract lawful is the signature of an oil company executive. If the farmer isn't he must go to a solicitor. Mr. Entrup said there are few lawyers experienced with surface rights. In this it is important for a farmer to know his land productivity and records to get a fair payment from the oil company for each acre of land taken out of production. If an agreement can't be reached by private the dispute has to go before the Surface Rights Board a costly move for both the farmer and the oil company. Speaking on behalf of the oil Mr. Entrup said the firms must pay an annual compensation to farmers for roadways and the actual oil well site. This practice isn't- mandatory for utility and pipeline companies which disrupt farming practices as much as oil companies. Mr. Entrup suggested the. formation of land user associations to more fully inform farmers. And if any complaints are farmers can contact the farmer's advocate office in Edmonton. Mr. Entrup no question I'll stand up for farmer's Mr. who has been assigned to monitor all sales of fertilizer to the U.S. from said the proposed ammonium plant at Lethbridge would be a good thing. He said it would provide another source for fertilizer. The demand for fertilizer is still the peak hasn't been reached by far. farmers are just realizing they can increase returns with he said. One case he is investigating is a 500-ton sale of fertilizer from the Lacombe area to the U.S. He can't understand the sale while supplies are short in Canada. He said the fertilizer industry has promised it will be hard on the individual dealer. But Canadian farmers are helping to create the he said. There have been cases in Southern Alberta where a farmer has placed three orders for fertilizer with different dealers. He then sells the extra fertilizer to an American farmer at an inflated actually getting his own supplies free. And it is absolutely said Mr. Entrup.

Tin- Herald- District Sawmills wrestle with smoke problem COLEMAN Natal Forest Products at Coleman says it will have its smoke pollution problem cleared up this summer. President George Knight says that burning of waste at the plant site east of Coleman will cease as arrangements have been completed with Johnson Brothers Sawmills at Cowley to remove the waste materials that will be used for bedding in feedlots. Mr. Knight said that his firm is now negotiating for the purchase of chipper which it is hoped will be available for installation in July. Once the equipment is installed the waste such as bark and will be run through the chipping machine and hauled away rather than burned. The firm has about eight to 10 tons of waste each day. The company looked into the cost of a smokeless burner for its operation but found the cost prohibitive. The equipment would cost about and it was doubtful if the local plant would produce enough waste to burn in the unit. Mr. Knight said the company's plans to eliminate the smoke has been presented to R. N. director of the government's division of pollution but to date the company has not been advised if the plan is satisfactory.

Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON Resident 562-2149 but this besides being extremely poses many other problems such as keeping extremely high constant temperatures to 900 degrees F to burn raw bark so that smoke is eliminated. Revelstoke has applied for time until the end of July to further its investigations into the problem. Revelstoke employs about 100 men and has an annual payroll of about An additional 50 men are working in the bush on contracts and payroll here is in excess of a quarter million dollars.
