Beetle salvage extension sought

TallOil Canada Inc. is seeking an extension from the province on several major pine beetle-killed timber salvage licences as it failed to meet a Nov. 1 deadline to have a pellet plant substantially completed.

"We have applied for an extension. It's now in the hands of the two regional managers who are doing their due diligence," TallOil CEO Gary Griffith said Wednesday.
