Kitimat- The Kitimat Ingot

Kitimat-Kemano, British Columbia, Canada

“The Kitimat Ingot” Newspaper, Nov-Dec 1954

Anne Arcuri in Toronto sent these 3 issues of an Early Newspaper in Kitimat
titled “the Kitimat Ingot”.
Sad to say, I don't have Volume 1, Issue 1, but I do have Volume 1, Issue 2, 3 and 5.

Printed Weekly for the needs of the Employees of Aluminum Company of Canada Ltd., at Kitimat and Kemano Works.
Produced by the Alcan Information Department
This was the Company Newspaper at that time.
