Reporting a net operating oss of 27 cents a share for the irst nine months of this year, 'ack Carlson, company presi- dent bared Ins need for addi- tional capital expenditures of more than million, nearly one-third the original esti- mates. He said Kaiser needs to renegotiate its 15-year contract with.a Japanese steel industry consortium. Rumors in business circles lad it that certain geological information had been misread and the company had in fact built the wrong kind of proces- sing plant. Monday's report said that iaiser Resources "now is de- veloping plans and taking cor. rective measures with respect :o the required modifications ;o the preparation plant and mining facilities, and is study- iig the effect on future costs of operation." Kaiser Resources is a divi- sion of Kaiser Steel of Oakland Calif. The coal operation is in the Crowsnest Pass east of Fer- me, near the Alberta border. The company had originally estimated capital expenditures of getting Kootenay coal out and aboard ship at Roberts Bank bulkloading terminal at million. Later this estimate was increased by about 15 per cetn to ?97.7 million, but the ad- litional expenditure would iring the total to million. Shipping figures indicate that Caiser Resources has to date ailed to ship the tonnage re- quired by its long-term con- tract with the giant Mitsubishi Jhoji Kaisha Company of Toy- o.
