Court approves sale of Elk Falls site….

On Aug 28th the courts approved the sale of the Elk Falls mill site land and assets to Pacific Deep Sea Terminals. The closing date of the sale to Pacifica has been pushed back to September 19th so that Schnitzer Steel has more time to wind up the salvage they are currently doing and get off site.

Interestingly, the #5 Paper machine assets that are still there are excluded from the sale,(the amchine – not the building) and the entire Kraftmill (limeplant, recaust, recovery, TG, Digesters and washers) is listed as excepted from the deal, meaning that if Catalyst can sell it, they will split the proceeds with the new owners.

Last week Catalyst Paper announced an agreement it reached with Pacifica Deep Sea Terminals Inc for the sale of the Elk site. The $8.6 million deal is expected to close by September 5, 2012.

Pacifica Owner and Director Harold Jahn, says they “intend to transform it into a dynamic industrial park and port facility with the goal of creating 400 full time jobs in the Campbell River region over the next three years.”

This could be good news for Campbell River, tell us what you think?
