West Fraser Mills to Further Curtail Production
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 13 February 2009 - West Fraser announced today that the company’s two BCTMP mills will take additional production curtailments that will reduce total production by approximately 50,000 metric tons over the period ending 31 May 2009. These curtailments at Quesnel River Pulp and Slave Lake Pulp are in addition to the 25% reduction in operating rates implemented at each mill in late 2008. The additional reduction of production is in response to continued weakening of demand for high-yield pulp.

West Fraser (www.westfraser.com) is an integrated wood products company producing lumber, LVL, MDF, plywood, pulp, linerboard, kraft pape,r and newsprint. West Fraser shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol: “WFT”.
