Historical images of the smelter, Kitimat-Kemano Project, and town of Kitimat
Images on the Museum website are both privately owned by the Museum and compiled from a number of private sector sources. Each source continues to maintain its image ownership. The Museum website is not a free share site.
Images requested for personal use will be provided at 300 ppi .jpg or .tif. They can be purchased for $10 per image plus tax (12%).
If an image order is too large to be sent digitally via e-mail (over 2 MB.), arrangements can be made to load to an .ftp site. The purchaser will receive appropriate notification from the site to collect their images.
All still images provided by the Kitimat Museum & Archives are subject to fees as follows:

- Images for commercial use (monetary gain) – $70 per image plus tax (12%)
Images requested for personal use will be provided at 300 ppi .jpg or .tif. Images can also be burned together onto CD/DVD for an additional $5 charge.

For those orders needing to be mailed, there is an additional fee for postage.
