Name of creator

Chromium Mining and Smelting Corporation Ltd. (1934-2012)

Administrative history

The Chromium Mining and Smelting Corporation Ltd. was founded in 1934 with its head office in Hamilton, Ont. At that time the company had a drilling operation near Collins, Ont. By the following year the company had established a plant in Sault Ste. Marie, occupying the facility previously held by Superior Alloys. Leo H. Timmins, of the Hollinger Gold Mine in Timmins, joined the company as president. In 1984 the company changed its name to Timminco Co. Ltd. In 2012, the company declared bankruptcy.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection mainly concerns the formation of an Employees’ Collective Bargaining Committee for the workers in Sault Ste. Marie in December 1941 and the negotiations which followed, culminating in a contract in July1943. The collection contains correspondence, labour legislation documents, draft agreements and other materials, and the completed contract. Correspondents include: Leo H. Timmins; Norman W. Bryne, Secretary; R.O. Denman, Vice-President, Managing Director and Treasurer; officials at the Department of Labour; and others. The collection also contains a Progress Report issued in 1934; a Balance Sheet and Notice of Annual Meeting in 1938; and two undated typescripts written during Word War II. One typescript concerns the development of the company in Sault Ste. Marie. The other is not specifically company related and concerns the struggle of tyranny against democracy.
