THUNDER BAY, ON, Sept. 20, 2011 (Local News) -
An agreement that could finally put an end to a two-year dispute over who is responsible for Marathon's dormant pulp mill could be approved by early next month.

The Ministry of Environment, former mill co-owner Tembec and other unnamed "parties" reached a tentative settlement on Friday.

Details haven't been released, but the ministry said Monday it could be endorsed by the province's Environmental Review Tribunal (ERT) on Oct. 6.

About a year's worth of negotiations have been going on to avoid a full ERT hearing.
