"This film explains the role of Inco nickel in progress and compares modern construction and industry to its counterparts in other cultures, contrasting a rope bridge in Tibet to the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco; African irrigation and water drawing to the Boulder Dam, and folk culture metal forging to the work of an Inco power hammer. The film also includes a sequence on underground mining in the Sudbury district of Ontario, showing miners digging a shaft and setting timbers in a stope, and sequences on modern smelting and refining methods."
