In June 1957, a financing company called 'National Department Stores' renamed itself to 'International Mining Corporation''

1972 note in book = "Thy Will be Done : The Conquest of the Amazon"
Lewis Bradley Harder (born 1918) was chairman of "International Mining Company". This helps us verify that in media sources in the 1900s, "International Mining Corporation" is sometimes referred to as "International Mining Company".
The chairman Lewis Bradley Harder (born 1918) of International Mining Corporation was also the chairman of the Molybdenum Corporation .
Memorandum From William J. Jorden of the National Security Council Staff to the President’s Assistant for National Security Affairs (Kissinger)1
August 10 1973
Ten days ago, the Colombian Minister of Mines (strongly anti-American) sent to the Senate a bill that would permit expropriation of the US-owned International Mining Company without cash compensation
IMC has been operating gold mines in Colombia for 50 years. It owns the mines and there is no contractual agreement. In recent years, the company had been losing money and was actively seeking Colombian participation, private or public. Now, with world gold prices at record highs, the company is showing a profit. I gather the company is unpopular in the region where it operates. This may be because of company actions or merely because it is foreign-owned, extractive and paternalistic. In any event, the ill feeling against the company makes expropriation attractive politically.
Raymond S. Clark (born in 1913) was (and still is) a board member at Davison Chemical Company . This would imply that Robert Swan Mueller I (b1893) (who is the exclusive distributor for Davison Chemical), would be a business acquaintance. As Davison Chemical operations have been in the "lower Clinton St" area of Canton, this also suggests a long-time relationship between Robert Swan Mueller I (b1893) and the person who is now retiring as President of Canton Company .
