We are in the “conditional period” prior to signing the lease at Bowater Mersey Paper Co., Brooklyn, Nova Scotia. We visited the location to speak to Nova Scotia Lands Engineer and previous Bowater plant manager for purposes of evaluating the use of the remaining mill equipment at the site and to speak with a demolition specialist. A meeting was held with one potential engineering contractor to discuss plant construction.
