HALIFAX, NS , May 21, 2013 (CBC) -The chair of the government agency spearheading a new business plan for the former Bowater-Mersey paper mill in Nova Scotia's Queens County is warning not to expect immediate results.

In December, the provincial government spent more than $115 million to acquire a large tract of private forest land that belonged to Resolute Forest Products Ltd. after the company closed the paper mill near Liverpool and threw about 320 people out of work.

That purchase gave the province control of 220,000 hectares of woodlands in Nova Scotia's southwestern region, along with a power generation plant, a factory site and the wood fibre inventory of the defunct paper mill.
