After a short hiatus, our weekly C&H News and Views issue is back for another issue from a half century ago. This particular sample comes to us from January of 1943, while the second great was in full swing. Making headlines this month was the proposed sinking of Allouez No.3, a new shaft located just to the west of New Allouez. The article mentions the surface plant would be recycled from dormant mines, and would be fully electrified. Buried deeper inside is something of a bit more interest, a small article detailing the work C&H was commencing for the Quincy Mining Company in regards to their new reclamation plant. Apparantly Quincy was unable or unwilling to build the plant themselves, and instead C&H was taking on the job. As was the norm during a war economy, most of the new plant was recycled from idle C&H infrastructure. Not only did C&H build the dredge to collect the Quincy’s tailings it also provided the regrinding mill itself and shore plant, most of which came from the closed Tamarack Reclamation plant in Tamarack city.
