SvefJifig Telegraph Thursday, Sept. 7, 1972 strike bring s mner ROSS RIVER, Yukon Territory (AP)—Al Kulan doesn't think it the least bit odd that he owns the only Rolls-Royce in the Yukon and the only house in this-village with a crystal chandelier. Kulan is the prospector Mho made the big strike. He won't say how many millions he's worth, but lie was one of Hie men wlio discovered the 63-million-ton lead-and-zinc ore bodv now being mined near here at Faro by Anvil Mining Corp. Ltd. For many men. that would have meant instant membership in the jet sot or retirement to a South Sea island. But not for Kulan. who prefers his luxurious, split-level home amidst (he Indian log cabins of Hoss River—population 220—which is more than 250 miles by gravel road from Whitchorse. As for that Rolls- Royce. Kulan smiled and said: "Everybody should have a Rolls at least once in their life. But you're not a bit. happier in a Rolls than a Volkswagen. "It's useful for driving the Indian stakers around—I can pack them all in—but no one even turns around and looks at it now." Kulan. 50. was born in Toronto and started prospecting In northern British Columbia and the Yukon in 1946. The Kulan family spent a short time in Vancouver after Anvil mine connected, but Kulan said "Vancouver just isn't my my type of place- it's beautiful but there are too many people." So a year ago, they moved back to Ross River, and Kulan designed and built his five-bedroom ho use.The house, with its three cars parked outside, Is plush. The red shag carpet fills every corner and echoes the red and gold brocade of the furniture. In the dining room there's a glimpse of a silver candelabra and a crystal chandelier. "Money isn't the answer to life." Kulan said. "You think money is going to solve all your problems but when you get it you find it. brings a new batch of problems."
