Notice of Intention to Designate a Provincial Historic Resource
(Historical Resources Act)
File: Des. 1615
Notice is hereby given that sixty days from the date of service of this Notice and its 
publication in the Alberta Gazette, the Minister of Tourism, Parks, Recreation and 
Culture intends to make an Order that the site known as the:
Diplomat Mine Site, together with the land legally described as:
Plan 9223531
Lot 1
Excepting thereout all mines and minerals.
Area: 2.5 hectares (6.18 acres) more or less
and municipally located in Flagstaff County, Alberta
be designated as a PROVINCIAL HISTORIC RESOURCE under Section 20 of 
the HISTORICAL RESOURCES ACT, R.S.A. 2000 C. H-9.
The reasons for the designation are as follows: The heritage value of the 
Diplomat Mine Site lies in its association with the evolution of strip mining 
operations and technology in Alberta.
The area which the Diplomat Mine Site occupies was originally part of the 
collection of homesteads claimed by Austin Bish and his family, who 
arrived in Alberta from Oregon in 1905.  In 1907, Bish's four sons 
established their first underground coal mine in the area to exploit the 
region's mineral deposits.  The Bish brothers continued to operate 
underground mines in the vicinity until 1949, when the operation was sold 
to a group of business interests incorporated under the name Forestburg 
Collieries Limited.  One year later, Luscar Coals Limited bought out the 
other partners in the enterprise and took control of the Diplomat Mine site.  
Prior to the 1940s, surface mining on a major scale had been unusual in 
North America; in the post-World War Two period, it became the dominant 
form of extraction in the industry.  From 1950 until the mine's closure in 
1986, massive extraction machines manufactured by the Marion and 
Bucyrus companies were responsible for removing overburden and stripping 
tons of coal from the site.  The history of the Diplomat Mine Site thus 
encapsulates the transition in the province's mining industry from the 
predominance of underground mines in the early twentieth century to the 
growth of mass strip mining operations in the latter half of the century.  
After the mine was closed, portions of the site were reclaimed for 
agriculture.
Originally built in 1927, the Marion 360 shovel excavator was moved to the 
Diplomat Mine site from a mining operation in Pequot, Illinois, in 1950.  At 
the time of its introduction in the 1920s, the Marion 360 was the largest 
mobile land machine in the world; when it arrived in Canada in 1950, it was 
the largest shovel in the country.  Built in the period pre-dating the 
widespread use of welding technology, the Marion 360 features riveted 
construction and a host of innovative elements, including a levelling system 
of four hydraulic pistons at each corner of the lower frame.  The Marion 360 
was the sole strip mining machine at the site until 1962, when a Bucyrus 
950-B Shovel was imported.  The new machine had been erected in 1937 
and represented at the time of its construction the largest excavator in the 
world.  With a working weight of over 1,400 tons and a boom of 33 metres, 
the Bucyrus 950-B, nicknamed "Mr. Diplomat", was a wonder to behold.  
The excavator's massive scoop - known as the "Big Dipper" - had a capacity 
of roughly 25 cubic metres and is the only structure extant on site from the 
Bucyrus 950-B.  Two years after the introduction of the Bucyrus 950-B 
Shovel, a smaller power shovel - the Bucyrus-Erie 120-B, built in 1944 - 
was also brought in to work at the mine.  The Diplomat Mine Site is thus a 
strong representation of the evolution of strip mining technology between 
the 1920s and the 1940s.  It also reflects the changes in the mining industry 
in Alberta between the early and the later twentieth century, recalling the 
emergence of large strip mining operations through the massive excavator 
equipment still on site.
It is therefore considered that the preservation and protection of the resource is in the 
public interest.

Notice of Intention to Designate a Provincial Historic Resource
(Historical Resources Act)
File: Des. 2096
Notice is hereby given that sixty days from the date of service of this Notice and its 
publication in the Alberta Gazette, the Minister of Tourism, Parks, Recreation and 
Culture intends to make an Order that the site known as the:
Alberta Wheat Pool Grain Elevator, together with the land legally described as:
Plan 9521044
Lots 4 and 5
Excepting thereout all mines and minerals.
Area: 0.686 hectares (1.7 acres) more or less
and municipally located at 4715 - 52 Avenue in the Town of Mayerthorpe, 
Alberta
be designated as a PROVINCIAL HISTORIC RESOURCE under Section 20 of 
the HISTORICAL RESOURCES ACT, R.S.A. 2000 C. H-9.
The reasons for the designation are as follows:  The heritage value of the 
Alberta Wheat Pool Grain Elevator in Mayerthorpe lies in its association 
with the dominant method of storing and transporting grain in Alberta 
throughout most of the twentieth century.  It also possesses significance as 
an icon of Alberta's agricultural and social history.
In 1909, the Canadian Northern Railway began laying track from Edmonton 
northwest to a proposed terminus in Grande Prairie.  Construction was slow 
and completion of the line grew increasingly uncertain with the arrival of the 
Edmonton, Dunvegan and British Columbia railway line into Grande Prairie 
from the west.  Nonetheless, several settlers optimistically claimed or 
purchased land along the anticipated route; among them was Leo Crockett, 
who subdivided part of his landholding into a townsite called Mayerthorpe.  
The influx of new settlers into the region after World War One and the 
extension of the railway line to Whitecourt by the Canadian National 
Railway (which had taken over the Canadian Northern) swelled the 
fledgling settlement's population.  In the 1920s, several grain elevators were 
constructed in Mayerthorpe to accommodate the region's burgeoning 
agricultural economy.  The Alberta Wheat Pool (AWP) constructed its first 
elevator in the community in 1928, five years after its formation as a co-
operative grain-marketing enterprise.  The extant single composite elevator 
at Mayerthorpe is a later construction, built by the AWP in 1966 in order to 
facilitate the handling of larger quantities of grain.  This elevator was 
connected to an annex built in 1940 to further supplement its grain-handling 
capacity.  Composite wood crib elevators like this were built by a number of 
companies - most notably the AWP - from the late 1950s until the mid-
1980s.  They represent the final stage of wood crib construction in the grain 
industry in Alberta before the introduction in the 1990s of concrete silo 
designs and the high through-put terminals.  The emergence of these larger 
capacity grain facilities and improvements to provincial highways ultimately 
rendered this elevator - like so many others in rural Alberta - obsolete.  
Grain elevators are singular symbols of the Prairies, reflecting the region's 
deep economic and social connections to agricultural life and providing 
striking vertical landmarks against the often monotonous flatness of the 
West.  Like other grain elevator sites in rural Alberta, the Alberta Wheat 
Pool Grain Elevator site was an integral part of Mayerthorpe's social fabric.  
The site encapsulates a pattern that defines the history of many rural 
communities - the growth of settlement following the arrival of the railway 
and the construction of grain elevators, the rise of the co-operative ethos that 
changed the nature of grain marketing in western Canada, and the closing of 
grain handling facilities with improvements to the province's transportation 
infrastructure.  The elevator complex thus represents in microcosm a whole 
range of changes to rural economy and society during the twentieth century.  
It is therefore considered that the preservation and protection of the resource is in the 
public interest.

and municipally located at 6770 - 129 Avenue and 12903 - 68 Street in the City of 
Edmonton, Alberta
be designated as a PROVINCIAL HISTORIC RESOURCE under Section 20 of 
the HISTORICAL RESOURCES ACT, R.S.A. 2000 C. H-9.
The reasons for the designation are as follows: The heritage value of St. 
Anthony's Seraphic College lies in its association with the establishment of 
the Franciscan order in western Canada and the development of Catholic 
higher education in Alberta.  
The arrival into Edmonton of the Canadian Northern Railway in 1905 and 
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in 1908 stimulated the expansion of 
industrial development and population growth in the city's northeast.  Many 
of the new arrivals to the area were working class immigrants from eastern 
European backgrounds.  Recognizing the need for spiritual guidance for this 
community and others northeast of Edmonton, the francophone bishop of St. 
Albert, Emile Legal, solicited help from the Franciscan order in Montreal.  
In 1908, the first Franciscans arrived in Alberta and began their missionary 
work to Edmonton and its northeast environs from their base in the 
settlement of Lamoureux, near Fort Saskatchewan.  The following year, the 
Franciscans relocated their mission to northeast Edmonton, where the need 
for clergy was more urgent.  The initially humble foundations of the mission 
- a rudimentary friary - grew over the years into an institutional complex 
that included the St. Francis of Assisi church (1911) and St. Anthony's 
Seraphic College (1925), among other buildings.  The college was the major 
Franciscan training college in western Canada, established to prepare young 
men for the priesthood.  The site was a heartland for Catholic spiritual life in 
the district, including at one point a church, college, friary, nearby parish 
hall, and gymnasium.  The St. Anthony's complex was also the seat of the 
Major Superior of the Ecclesiastical Province of Christ the King in Western 
Canada.  The college continued to function until 1970, when it was 
converted into a private boarding school.  
It is therefore considered that the preservation and protection of the resource is in the 
public interest.
