Catalyst announced the sale of approximately 250 hectares of surplus land in Powell River, British Columbia, for $4.5 million.
The forested land is adjacent to the Powell River mill site. While the land was previously harvested by predecessor companies, it has never been the site of manufacturing activity. Catalyst had no plans to use this parcel of land.
