Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 22, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Country creek A small creek flows through the countryside about four miles east of Magrath, still free of the scum of ice coating streams farther north. Hillside lots to be purchased COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Town council is negotiating with Coleman Collieries to ob- tain two rocky, hillside cemeteries owned since pre First World War days by the mining company in north Coleman. Ted Nicholson of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission suggested the town should hold title to the land, some of which will be used as "com- munity reserve" as it is too steep and rocky for any prac- tical use. The planning commission will be asked to look for a new cemetery site. Rudy Szymanek, town foreman, says both the Protestant and Catholic cemeteries are almost full and new graves have to be blasted out of the rock. He told council the cemeteries will be filled within two years. Fire Chief Henry Zak has in- formed council that the local fire truck is becoming anti- quated and needs extensive repairs. He suggested that Coleman contact the Village of Frank and ask if its large pumper unit is for sale. The Frank council is said to be interested in getting fire protection ser- vices from Blairmore. Council received a report from the sewer control branch of the department of the en- vironment which says there is infiltration of water into town sewer lines. There was no recommendation on how to correct the problem. The town foreman says sewage is not aerating proper- ly at the disposal site. Barry Finance, working un- der the direction of Clayburn Holdings Company Ltd., will survey the site for the propos- ed Coleman shopping centre. The town has written off a debt owed by the now defunct Coleman Sports Association. The town wants the Coleman recreation board to take over the association's duties with a clean slate. The town and the Canadian Union of Public Employees will open talks soon for the 1975 contract.

CRANBROOK (Special) Placid Oil Company, which operated a copper mine on the Bull River in the East Kootenay until late June, is one of four B.C. industries to receive awards for pollution control. Placid Oil received the award from the Pacific Northwest Pollution Control Association. The mine was located on the lower slopes of a mountain where the slope is about 15 degrees and is covered with glacial tile and gravel. The Bull River runs in a steep sided valley about feet away from the tailing im- poundment. To prevent the loss of tailing water and possible contamina- tion of the river, the company installed a plastic liner over the floor of the impoundment which measures 600 by feet. Pond contents are recycled to the concentrator as process water. As a result, the environment has been protected and the company has earned recognition. The company has been m operation for three years. In late June it found that the deposits had run out and ceas- ed operations. It is uneconomical to con- tinue at the present time as remaining deposits are scanty.
