What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

S e c u r i t y B a n k This photo of the 1931 Big Timber Rodeo comes from the family collection of well-known stock producer Leo Cremer, Sr., who spearheaded the local event for many years. CHEVRON-MANVILLE-ANACONDA JOIN TO ASSESS MINING POTENTIAL IN STILLWATER CPU NTY SG COUNTY CLAIMS NOT INCLUDED IN VENTURE Chevron Resources Company and Manvillc Products Corpora­ tion, (partners in Stillwater PGM Resources) and Anacondn Miner­ als have agreed in principle to form an additional joint venture for the continued evaluation of a platinum- group minerals area in Stillwater County, Montana The new venture involves a group of claims approximately 5-6 miles long on the eastern end of the 25 mile-long Stillwater Complex. PGM Resources brings to the joint venture mining claims with plati­ num group mineral potential; Ana­ conda contributes mining claims and property permitting access to some of those claims, as well as operation sites, buildings, utilities and a ncnrly - completed environ­ mental impact study. By joining together, a spokes­ person said, the three partners can more quickly evaluate the mineral potential of the claims and reach a decision, probably by the fall of 1984, on the desirability of estab­ lishing a mining operation. The fate of the Stillwater PGM Resources office in Big Timber is as yet undecided, spokesman Joe Dewey said Monday. A decision will probably be made by late sum­ mer on whether the office will be kept open, he stated. The company is closing their BiL lings office and tranferring the work done there to the Absarokce office and to the new office to be opened at the Anaconda-based operation in the old hospital at Nye. Dewey explained the only claims included in the joint venture are located in Stillwater County. Chcv- ron-Manville claims in Sweet Grass County, from the cast county boundary to the Boulder River area, will be handled as a separate group. Heading the work done on the Sweet Grass County claims will be Doug Keith and operations will be based out of the Absarokce office. The immediate plans for the joint venture, according to Dewey, are to extend the existing Minneapolis adit 3,000 feet and continue explor­ ation work. At the end of approxi­ mately 15 months, a decision on whether or not to mine is expected to be made by the companies in­ volved. POM’S Frog Pond Adit will re­ main inactive, as it has been for nearly two years, and proposals for a lower adit near Brownlee Creek have been sciubbcd, Dewey said. Wilderness exploration, as an­ nounced earlier, will continue through this summer, based from the Picket Pen ranch in the Stili- water Valley. Manvillc Products Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manvillc Corporation; Chevron Resources Company is a wholly- owned subsidiary of Standard Oil Company of California; and Ana­ conda Minerals Company is a divi­ sion of Atlantic Richfield Com­ pany. The agreement in principle is contingent upon approval by man­ agement of all parties and the Bank­ ruptcy Court for the Southern Dis­ trict of New York in connection with a petition filed by Manvillc Corporation for relief under Chap­ ter 11 of the Federal Bankruptcy Act With those approvals, a final contract agreement is expected to be finalized in the near future. While the final agreement is be­ ing prepared, the new joint venture will fund 1983 field season work employing approximately 15 full­ time employees plus a number of contractors. Evaluation work cur­ rently planned for the 1983 season includes surface and underground geology and engineering work. Chevron Resources Company will be the operator. All partners will hold equal shares and equal repre­ sentation on the venture’s manage­ ment committee.

She is an old friend of Anna Tetlie, Don’s mother, and worked with her before she married BenTetlie. Father's Day shoot Ed and Cindy Webber held their annual Fathers Day Shoot up the Boulder Sunday. Nice to see was the number of young shooters there. The mark for the shooters was the usual gong on the side hill and several hidden caches of dynamite, shot at and missed many times before a lucky bullet his them. They exploded with satisfactory noise, smoke, and cheers from the spec­ tators. Contonnial displays Displays of old-time clothes and the blankets from the old local woolen mill can be seen around town now. Also on view is a display of old school mementoes. Members of the Pioneer Society will have a showing of old pioneer things at Lowry’s soon. Some of the indi­ vidual projects and showings have been worthwhile. It is hoped others will respond. The interest, is really there. Convention Leslie Schiele was in Great Falls the first part of the week attending a convention of piano teachers.
