The Preservation of Timber by Chemical Treatment at Mcintyre

CIM Bulletin, 1949


SOME years ago it was general practice in Canadian mines to use the best timber available, just as it was cut from the tree. Later, to prevent 'borers' from getting into the wood while stacked in the yard, the bark was peeled off, cleaned up carefully, and burned to eliminate a breeding ground for these and other destructive insects.
