Research and Natural Resources

CIM Bulletin, 1952


A STRIKING FEATURE of the 'Past twenty years has been the application of organized scientific and industrial research to problems ,of national defence and security and to the development of our natural resources. It has been shown that effective research improves public health, increases the productivity of land, makes mineral wealth available, and increases the efficiency and productive capacity of industry. Alberta is a region bounteously ,provided with 'a variety of natural resources, and the Province has entered into a period of unprecedented industrial development. There is, surely, a great opportunity to bring scientific research to bear on problems associated with the development of these natural resources.
