The monthly report describes plant production and gives tabulations for receipts and shipments for the month of July, 1957. A strike at Weldon Spring where evaluation work at the Sampling Plant was stopped and a strike at Destrehan Street resulted in loss of production days. Refinery production totalled 384 TU during 20 days of operation. Green salt production totalled 325 TU during 20 days of operation. Derby production totalled 239 TU during 20 days of operation at the Metal Plant. Some difficulty experienced with certain pieces of the operating equipment is reported. Initial test results of product indicate an iron contamination of approximately 60 ppm which is expected to decrease as additional material is processed.
