“Aluminum Makes the Grade,” Alcan 16mm Film Catalogue Addendum (Montreal: Aluminum Company of Canada, Limited: c.1960), 1.
“The film shows aluminum, off-highway rock bodies in service in various mines in Eastern Canada. The story of the development of these bodies is traced back to the original test programme carried out at the Jeffrey Mine of Canadian John Manville in 1959. The indication of weight-saving and lower haulage costs is of particular interest to those connected with the mining, quarrying and general construction industries."
