Conifex Timber Inc. announced today that commencing May 6, 2019, it is temporarily curtailing operations at its Fort St. James, British Columbia sawmill for four weeks and its Mackenzie, British Columbia sawmill for three weeks, due primarily to continued high log costs and lumber market conditions.

The temporary curtailment is expected to reduce Conifex’s British Columbia lumber output by approximately 24 million board feet.
