Seventy-five jobs are at risk in a small South Australian town if the local sawmill does not find a new supply of logs. The Morgan Sawmill at Jamestown, in mid-north SA, is a family business that has been recently reliant on processing timber from the Adelaide Hills.
But it failed to secure a contract with ForestrySA after a tender process to continue receiving those logs.
“If we don’t get the log from the Adelaide Hills, then there’s very little option other than to close the sawmill, and that would result in 75 full-time employees without work,” owner Luke Morgan said.
