STH Biomass LP (STH) and Stuwix Resources Ltd (Stuwix) have signed a Forest Management Agreement of cooperation that both companies describe as “historic.” The Forest Management Agreement allows Stuwix to help STH manage their forest licences and build capacity within their communities.
Stuwix operates within parts of Nlaka’pamux and Silyx territories in the Merritt Timber Supply Area (TSA) and STH Biomass is located within the northern part of the St’at’imc Territory in the Lillooet TSA. Stuwix is a partnership of six Nlaka’pamux and two Sylix communities and has been in operation since 2005. This marks the first time these Nations have come together to address challenges in the local forest industry.
The agreement was signed Apr. 20 at T’it’q’et.
