It was an ancient mill and it was inevitable that they shut down. There's no shortage of private timberland that supplies the other mills and there's more than enough pulp supply from Indonesia.
Closer to home, some pulp mills in Canada that have been shut down for more than a decade are getting ready to start up again because of an improvement in North America market conditions. A lot of mills here shut down, dismantled their equipment, and sold it all to China.
Several mills I am aware of in BC were dismantled as well, others were mothballed.
After working at several mills, I wonder just how well a decade long idled mill can be turned on. There’s serious issues with the pressure vessels and boilers
