Sand & Gravel and Peat Moss Development Possibilities for Northern Albertans

Abstract: Our group this afternoon will be considering two kinds of non-renewable mineral resources which have special implications for northern residents, because both are amenable to small-scale development, that is, on a scale of operations within the reach of the smaller businessman and entrepreneur. These are sand & gravel and peat moss.Both are industrial mineral commodities which are familiar to most everyone through everyday use, and both (in particular, sand & gravel) are essential commodities that we literally could not get along without. Both also have broadly similar problems and procedures in development.Our approach for dealing with these subjects is for me to first give a brief and general overview of these commodities as to their resource potential for northern Alberta, followed in turn by my co-panellists, Mr. Sprecher and Mr. Johansen, who will give a detailed account of their own business experiences in developing a sand & gravel and peat moss deposit.We will make our presentation in two parts, dealing first with sand & gravel, then with peat moss, after which we'll invite your participation and try to answer questions pertaining to either commodity.
