    The last roll of steel was manufactured in fall of 2004. Operations were ceased and the property's staff left, putting it into a state of closure (not abandonment). The property is still in a condition that it could re-commence operations. This just may happen given Stelco's successful re-structuring.

     Future Plans
    The mill is being demolished as of Spring 2008.
