Crane death accidental cranes lifting a truss for the clean coal building. Six men were on a truss being lifted and were about 80 feet off the ground at tlie time. It appears that one of the two cranes in use started to lift on its tracks, causing the truss to swing and the crane to lose part of its load. The second crane tried to hold the load until the six men on tlie truss could reach safety. It appears the truss struck the remaining crane, causing it to buckel. Mr. Van Hedegan was em- ployed on the site of the Ford- ing Coal Company operations at Fording River. SPARWOOD (HNS) coroner's jury here has ruled the Oct. 1 death of F. Van Hedegan 35, of Sparwood was accidental and no blame is at- tached to anyone. The jury made two recom- mendations, first that the de- partment of mines' reference to cranes be enforced to the letter; second that all weights and degrees of measures be calculated by a certified en- gineer. Mr. Van Hedegan was killed about p.m. Also injured in tlie accident was foreman Ar- nold Lucht. The accident involved two Loader death probe set SPARWOOD (HNS) Coro-i 5 at tlie Municipal District of ner Dr. E. Luzod of Sparwood j Sparwood office, has ordered an inquest into the j Mr. Marchuk was killed Oct. 15 death of Steve Mar-1 when a front-end loader he was the specified 8.75 per cent. The raw coal was then wash- ed and cleaned by a combina- tion of screens, heavy media vessels, heavy media cyclones water-only cyclones, and flota- tion cells, known respectively as heavy media vessel circuit, heavy media cyclone circuit, hydrocyclone circuit and froth flotation circuit. A portion of the coal passes over vibrating for dewatering and then through centrifuges. Vacuum filters de- water the coal from the hydro- cyclone and froth flotation cir- cuits. AH of the coal from the heavy media cyclones, hydro- cyclones and froth flotation is then heaWried to less then 6 per cent moisture. Aim of the modification pro- gram is to correct deficiencies in the fine cryl circuit to allow it to handle a higher percen- tage of run of the mine coal, to eliminate de dusters and to convert the raw coal screening circuit lo a wet screening cir- cuit for improved screening ef- ficiency. The modification will also al- low more effective removal o! fine coal from magnetite usec in the heavy media process. Because of the increased ca- pacity of tlie fine circuit and washing of all the raw coal, a second 175-foot diameter thick- ener was required to handle the increased volume of water When the plant is completed it will greatly improve the operating availability of tlie plant. Tlie desliming screens capa- city will be increased to handle an additional load of fines anc the coal-water slurry will be distributed to the screens in such a manner that any single screen can be blocked out for repairs without shutting down the entire circuit. Additional magnetic separates will im prove the separation of mag- netite from the fine coal. The problem of the plus 100-mesh clean coal going to the flotation cells and being lost will be cor- rected by installation of rappee sieve bends. Flotation capacity will be increased by 33 per ceni j and there are plans to improve killed 1 the thermal dryer. chuk, 45, formerly of Edmon- on.
