It was a pretty decent Production season this year compared to other years with our Production up around the 3 million tonne mark and when shipping season comes to an end which should be somewhere around the 3rd week of December, we should be over the 3 million which is a good year for sales compared to the past.

It has been a better year for sales so far than the company predicted as we're up 400,000 tonnes more last year at this site. We have shipped 70,000 tonnes more than last year. The month of August was one of our best months in a long time with roles over 450,000 tonnes. Let’s hope that it will continue.
