Dunkley Lumber Sawmill Expansion Makes Notable Progress

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The proposed $100 million expansion at Dunkley Lumber sawmill in Carrot River is expected to create around 240 new direct and indirect jobs. The company reported notable progress to expansion works.

According to company press release, the provincial government of Saskatchewan has granted approval for timber allocations in support for the proposed sawmill expansion. The province has allocated some of the additional timber through the Ministry of Energy and Resources. The company plans to secure majority of the timber required for the project through negotiated agreements with indigenous timber allocation holders and private landowners, it noted.

Meantime, Rob Novak, President, Dunkley Lumber said that the phased development of the mill will add a second saw line, thus resulting in increased production. It will boost the mill’s lumber production capacity to 230 million board feet per annum, from current levels of 130 million board feet.
