Interview begins with an overview of the Gething family's early involvement in mining throughout the Pacific Northwest in the late 19th/early 20th centuries. They were closely connected in this venture with the Aylard and Green families, with whom they owned land at Hudson Hope and in the Kootenay District.

Shortly after Lloyd Gething's birth in 1912, the family moved from Vancouver to Prince George. They operated a farm at Vanderhoof for four years and later moved to Hudson Hope to develop a coal mine.

Gething recalls how his family ran an unsuccessful coal mine at Hudson Hope during the 1920s. When the popularity of coal declined in the early 1930s, Gething and his brothers sought other employment. He worked as a teacher, helped build an airport at Fort Nelson, attempted to join the army during WWII, and ran a trucking service along the Alaska Highway.

Gething gives an overview of the history of Telkwa Coal Mine prior to his arrival in 1951. He discusses its founding in 1922 by Jack McNeil and Asa 'Ace' Robinson, and how the first real operations started under the Dockrills later in the decade. Robinson later tried to open his own mine, which was taken over by Alexander Richmond during WWII. Gething further discusses Robinson's personality, mining experience, hobbies, and endeavours, as well as other small coal operations in the Bulkley Valley.
