To be built on Dore Lake in north-central Saskatchewan, the Athabasca Forest Industries mill would produce about 1,400 tons of pulp daily, said Provincial Treasurer D. O. Steuart. It would be built by Parsons and Wbittemore Inc. of New York and would be the firm's second mill in the province. The other, built at Prince Albert nearly five year* ago tor 866 million, produces about 700 ton* of pulp dally. The first announcement a tec* end mill was planned came from Premier Ross Thatcher during a visit to New York 11 months ago and Friday's formal mtroduotion by Mr. Steuart is viewed by some as a spring-hoard to a provincial general election this year. Construction would provide an estimated 1,000 badly-needed Jobs in the province and $18 mil' lion in wages during the building stage each year until completed aometiroe in 1874. MUST BE APPROVED Mr. Thatcher said no agreements will be signed until the bill has been approved by the legislature but, unless there are some mavericks on the Liberal government's side of the house, which has 84 of 88 seats, the bill wUl be approved. The New Democratic Party hat the other 23 seats. The new mill could cost up to $177 million when all side products such as railway line* and highways are taken into account. Under the proposed agreement for the Dore Lake Mill, Parson* and Whlttemore will put up $16.8 million of the required $24 million in equity capital for a 70 per cent there. The province will put Up the other 87.2 million for a SO�per-cent share, the same as it hub the Prince Albert mill. . The government alao proposes to guarantee long-term loans of $107 million in return for a first mortgage and a fee of 83.8 million from Parsons and Wbittemore. Three factors affect the entire proposal: The st&l unrecelved approval of a $i2-million federal incentives grant; completion of an agreement for a railway line to the mill site from Meadow Lake, 80 miles to the south; and timber rights on the Cold Lake federal air weapons-testing range which straddle* the Alberta border. Athabasca Forest Industrie* would obtain a 30-year forest management licence covering necessary timber acreage and the government could reserve rights within the area for public purpose* such as townskes or park*.
