The Sandy River Powder Mill

Supposedly a powder mill was constructed near Sandy River in 1861. Does anyone know where exactly?

Obviously, a new powder mill would have been very helpful to the Confederate army. (Why the eminent opening of the mill was announced in a New Orleans newspaper is rather mysterious, though. Wouldn’t it have been better to keep the factory under wraps, so to speak?)
