BIG COAL-SLURRY LINE PROPOSED FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA

Cascade Pipe Line Ltd., a subsidiary of Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), proposes the construction of a $200 million, 490 mi long pipelines to transport coal from the East Kootenay coal fields in southeastern British Columbia to the Pacific Coast port of Roberts Bank near Vancouver. Construction would begin in 1972. Preliminary engineering has been conducted by Williams Brothers Canada Ltd., and Canadian Pacific's subsidiary cominco Ltd. is working jointly with Wright Engineering of Vancouver on the development and testing of coal-crushing processes for the project. Research and development work is being conducted by ShelPac Research & Development Ltd., a joint subsidiary of Canadian Pacific and Shell Canada Ltd. The pipeline will complement rather than compete with the present transportation of coal from kootenay to the coast by rail.
