     "X" is the greater of $700 or the average weekly price of a ton of
pulp in the previous payment period calculated under item 2 of this
Schedule.

               (a)  taking, for each full week ending on a Friday of
the payment period, the price as prescribed by the Minister in US dollars
of a metric air dried ton of Canadian bleached kraft softwood pulp
delivered in the US market,

               (b)  converting each weekly price into Canadian dollars
using the exchange rate prescribed by the Minister for each week, and

               (c)  calculating the average of those converted prices.

     3   If the Minister is satisfied that the distance by road using a
reasonable route from the location where the timber is harvested to the

     2   The average price for 1000 square feet of 3/8" plywood for the
month preceding the month in which the veneer is sold is calculated by

               (a)  determining for each full week ending on a Friday
of the month preceding the month in which the veneer is sold the adjusted
price for each week as calculated under item 3 of this Schedule,

               (b)  converting each weekly adjusted price into Canadian
dollars using the exchange rate prescribed by the Minister for each week,
and

               (c)  calculating the average of those converted prices.

     3   The adjusted price for a week is calculated by the formula:



     where

     "AP" is the adjusted price;

     "RLP"     is the weekly net F.O.B. mill price of Western Plywood, CD
exterior, inland mills «" 4-5 ply as shown in the publication titled Random
Lengths, published by Random Lengths Publications Inc.;

     "Y"  is the duty payable on the timber expressed as a percentage
that is prescribed by the Minister.

     4   If the Minister is satisfied that the distance by road using a
reasonable route from the location where the timber is harvested to the
mill in which the timber is made into veneer is 150 kilometres or greater,
the timber dues for that timber are 50% of the rate calculated under item 1
of this Schedule.


16   Notwithstanding section 3 of this Regulation, section 39 of the Timber
Management Regulation as it read immediately before the coming into force
of this section applies to

     (a)  commercial timber permits sold by tender or auction before this
section comes into force, and
