VIDEO: The Fort Frances kraft mill comes tumbling down

The kraft mill stood for 50 years

FORT FRANCES, Ont. — The tallest structure in Fort Frances came crashing down on the weekend.

Canadian National Demolition conducted an implosion of the former Resolute Forest Products kraft mill at 5:00 a.m. Saturday.

The event was captured on video posted to Facebook by Chris Kaun.

The kraft mill was 50 years old.

Construction of the mill by the Ontario-Minnesota Pulp & Paper Co. was completed in 1971. 

Resolute closed its Fort Frances operations in 2014 and sold the assets to Riversedge Developments in 2019.

Demolition began in November 2020.
