    Titles read: "CANADA'S NEW OIL RESERVES" (Dublin issue).

    Alberta, Canada.

    Various shots in a sand quarry of oil-bearing sand. A man rubs his hand over sandy rocks and shows his oil-covered hand to us. Dynamite charges are laid in a rock in the quarry and an explosion loosens the sand which is carried off to the refinery in a truck.

    At the refinery we see the complicated processes in involved in extracting the oil. The oil is used for aviation fuel and a lubricating spirit, while the residue is used for asphalt and the sand for glass blowing.
