Coast Tsimshian Resources hires engineers to develop plans for a new sawmill, pellet plant in Terrace, British Columbia

LOS ANGELES , February 23, 2012 () –

Coast Tsimshian Resources LP is progressing in its plan to develop a sawmill and wood pellet plant on the site of its logyard in Terrace, British Columbia, and will bring in a team of engineers to look at facility plans, said a company manager, the Terrace Standard reported Feb. 22.

The facilities, to include a sawmill followed by a wood pellet plant, will be built at the Terrace-based company's Poirier log sort yard.

Coast Tsimshian general manager Wayne Drury said the move to engage engineers moves it closer to its previously announced goal of expanding at the site, the Terrace Standard reported.

The logyard encompasses 59 hectares (146 acres), according to the company website.

Drury said the available wood resources in the northwest press the company to extract the maximum value from every log and a pellet plant will utilize sawmill wastewood, reported the Terrace Standard.

Drury said Coast Tsimshian has an unidentified company as partner in the pellet plant, which he said is a major participant in the pellet sector.

The Lax Kw’alaams band from Port Simpson, British Columbia, owns Coast Tsimshian. The company exports to the southern region of the province and to Asian markets, mainly China.
