Abstract: [Beresford] In conclusion, I would like to say that a good spirit of cooperation has been built up between St. Regis and Union Oil, and each industry can benefit from a non-renewable resource activity such as coal mining followed by restoration of healthy tree growth on mined-out lands. As we say, we are only borrowing the land for a short while and giving it back for future years of productive timber growth. [Kennedy] Monitoring studies are planned to continue at Judy Creek annually for two more years and once every three years thereafter to 15 years. We believe the information gained from the Judy Creek test pit monitoring will be beneficial to our reclamation planning for the proposed Judy Creek mine and hopefully can be used in reclamation planning for other Esso Minerals coal properties in Alberta such as the Hinton east property.
