BIG RIVER STEEL STILL LOOKING AT THE PORT OF BROWNSVILLE FOR NEW FACILITY


"But the Arkansas mill is “fairly focused on automotive already,” he added.

In a sign of the Big River’s seriousness about building a second mill, the company has extended an option agreement for land at the Port of Brownsville in Texas.

“We continue to spend time, effort and money... on a southern mill, with the most focus currently on the Port of Brownsville,” Stickler said, noting that he met with state officials in Texas in recent weeks to discuss jobs."


This back and forth on the mill is really about pressuring Texas to help with the project.  It is a political game.  If played to BRS satisfaction the Port of Brownsville will get the new steel mill.
