Inco uses aerial seeding to speed up reclamation

Inco Limited has initiated an aerial seeding pilot program which company officials say will speed up Inco's reclamation project in the Sudbury area.

Agric Air Inc. sprayed a 125-acre parcel near Inco's Clarabelle Mine in Copper Cliff, west of Sudbury, during most of last month. The program involved planes flying approximately 50 feet off the ground at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour, applying lime and a fertilizer-grass mixture.

The area is considered to be relatively inaccessible to conventional greening and reforestry efforts.

Inco officials say the results of the program will not be known until spring.
