The proposed pulp mill project site in the Tamar valley


Although the area is zoned industrial, the pulp mill project area is mainly woodland and forest (Sep 07) and the mill site (yellow dot) is 4.5kms south of Bell Bay industrial area and port. There is an existing wood chip mill in the bottom corner. The total area is approximately 600ha and will include areas for landfill (for 49 000 tonnes of waste/year), quarry, water supply holding dam, wharf and road and rail infrastructure. Source Gunns IIS
