Mill in Susanville will be operating by April first
January 17, 1947

Susanville is in line for another lumber industry. Present plans of the Susanville Logging Company call for its new mill to be operating by April 1st.

The site is on property purchased from Harold Bradford between the highway and the Southern Pacific tracks on the south side of the road. The tract adjoins the Mallery ranch.

The plant will be Diesel powered. The two-and one-half acre mill pond already is completed and will hold approximately 500,000 feet of logs.

The output for the mill will be about 40,000 feet daily and the owners intend to operate at full capacity.

It is estimated about 35 men will be employed in addition to the 150 now employed in their other operations. The logging company will continue to haul for the Lassen Lumber and Box Company as for several years.

The Susanville Logging Company has timber holdings available for several years of cutting and its operation is to be a permanent one. The holdings are in the Susanville area and the logs will be brought to the new mill for cutting by their own equipment.
