Refinery From Texas Now in Use
At Canol; Shipping Was Problem
WHITEHORSE.—A refinery, dismantled in Texas and a power
fiant from Ontario, transported thousands of miles to the Canadian
Northwest, is now operating at Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, mark
ing the final step in completion of the Canol project.
Crude oil pumped through the
completed pipeline from
Wells, Northwest Terri
recently
Norman
tories, site of the oil field, arrived
at the plant April 16.
Aftfr reserve stock was built
up and the actual testing of the re
finery process completed, the first
refined products started flowing
into the storage tanks April 30.
Tons of Steel
Tons of steel were used in the re
finery's construction, in addition
to the Bareco refinery from Corpus
Christi, Texas, which was dis
mantled and shipped by rail to
Ptlnce Rupert.
From there it was shipped by
boat to Skagway, Alaska, and then
over the narrow gauge White Pass
and Yukon route to Whitehorse.
To assure that many of the huge
pieces of equipment would
through tunnels and around
curves, wooden models were tested
on the flat cars before shipment of
the actual parts was attempted. At
times greased planks were used to
ease equipment around sharp
curves. .
A power plant was dismantled
Hamilton. Ontario, and trans
ported over the same route.

I-V» Workers
Fifteen hundred men worked
throughout the winter of 1943-44,
sometimes In temperatures as low
as 35 degrees below to rush the re
finery to completion in time to
process the crude from the oil field
as it arrived.
It was necessary to design and
construct a complete water dis
tribution system for the needs of
the refinery.
Tank farms were laid out in pre
paration for the storage of crude
and the finished products.
Work Is Begun
On Yale's Line
construction of the northern end
of the 81-mile pipeline of Yale Oil
Pipe Lines, Inc., from ' the Elk
Basin and Frannie fields to Laurel
and Billings, is now under way.
The entire line is expected to be
completed and in use by July.
A. W. Hartwig, of Clovis, N. M.,
and Billings, is contractor for the
line, which will include 51 miles
of 8%-inch pipe and 30 miles of 6
inch pipe.
Headquarters of the pipe-line
company, a Delaware corporation,
are at Billings. P. M. Fortin, of Bil
lings, formerly vice president and
general manager of Yale Oil Corp.,
is president, and J. G. Dyer, former- ,
ly with the Continental Oil Co., is
vice president.
CANADA VISITORS
GET 12 GALLONS
Visitors to Canada from the
United States will get only 12 Im
perial gallons of gasoline a year,
rding to a recent announcement
by the Canadian government travel
bureau.
The Automobile club of southern
California was also informed that
such visitors are not permitted to
take into Canada any more gaso
line than is regularly carried in a
car's gas tank.
Canadian customs officers stamp
vehicle licenses upon entry to show
that a ration coupon book has been
issued, while motorists must sur

MICA SEARCH
INTENSIFIED
HOT SPRINGS, S, D — A wide
spread search for domestic
of mica of commercial grade is be
ing conducted hy the Geological
survey. United States dfttoartmem
of the interior, in an effort to help
meet the increasing demand for
high-quality mica for war purposes
In the course of these Investi
gâtions a number of mines and
mica-bearing deposits of South
Dakota have been examined a»*
mapped by Survey eeologtets,
particularly in Custer and Penning
ton counties in the southern Black
Hills region.
The Investigations are continu
ing, and as the field work pro
gresses additional maps and sec
tions of mines and
bearing deposits in
counties in South Dakota will be
prepared.
The work is aimed at helping
operators and war agencies to de
velop new potential deposits and to
increase the output of currently
operating mines. M the present
time, however, the detailed results
of the Investigations cannot be
published, but In order that those
directly Interested in the develop
ment of the properties may make
immediate use of the maps and sec
lions, copies have been placed on
open file at the offices of the
Geological Survey in Washington
D. C., and Custer, S. D., where they
may be consulted.
