Fraser Papers to Take Maintenance Downtime at Edmundston, NB Mill

June 19, 2006 - Fraser Papers Inc. said that it is taking nine days of maintenance downtime at its pulp mill in Edmundston, New Brunswick. Maintenance work began on Saturday, June 17, 2006.

During the shutdown, the mill is making repairs to its recovery boiler, Fraser said.

Fraser also said it will shut down one paper machine for seven days and another for three days at its adjacent paper mill in Madawaska, Maine, primarily due to the shortage of pulp available from Edmundston.

The company estimates that all shutdowns taken during the quarter in Edmundston and Madawaska will negatively impact second quarter results by approximately $6 million.
