MARATHON, Ont -- A deal may be on the horizon for the idle pulp mill in Marathon.
The facility has been mothballed since 2009 when co-owner Tembec went bankrupt.
According to Marathon Mayor Rick Dumas, agreements are in place with all parties involved. It's now just a matter of getting the papers signed.
Dumas said the Ministry of the Environment, as well as the former owner and Green Investment Group Inc. have reached a deal.
Tembec takes responsibility for any environmental issues on the site, including remediation. But once the deal is completed, those concerns will likely transfer to the Green Investment Group.
