Ash System

When coal is burned in the boilers, two types of ash are produced.

The heavier ash, which collects in the bottom of the boiler, is called "bottom ash". This ash is collected and trucked back to the mine site, where it is buried before the land is reclaimed.

The remaining, lighter ash, which is carried through the boiler with the exhaust gas, is known as "flyash". The flyash is removed from the furnace exhaust by electrostatic precipitators. With the flyash removed, the remaining flue gases are discharged up the stack.

Much of the collected flyash is sold to be used in the manufacture of concrete. The remaining flyash is returned to the mine for burial.

We are located on the grounds of the Leduc West Antique Museum. Travel 5 miles west of Leduc on Highway 39. Go north on Range Road 260 (Cohne Dale Road) for about a mile and the museum will be on your right. The museum is closed for the winter, however we are looking forward to opening our doors on May 27 for the Leduc West Antique Society Spring Swap Meet, Tractor Pull & Music Series. Featured will be all manner of vendor tables, displays, tours, and the first Tractor Pull of the season. In the evening the first concert of the Music Series will feature "Prairie Sky" on stage.
July 22 & 23 is the LWAS Annual Exposition, the biggest event of the year which will include public tours, exhibits, a parade of antique vehicles, and a Tractor Pull; on Saturday evening the Music Series will feature "The Jivin' Belles" performing songs heavily influenced by close harmony groups of the 40's like the Andrews Sisters.
September 9 & 10, the final event of the summer season is the Fall Harvest event… with public tours, exhibits and the Tractor Pull Provincial Finals event. The final music performance of the season will feature “Celtera” and as their name implies is steeped in the music from the Emerald Isle and Scotland.
