Beowulf (AIM: BEM; AktieTorget: BEO), the Nordic focused mineral exploration and development company, focused on the Kallak magnetite iron ore project and the Åtvidaberg polymetallic exploration licence in Sweden, and its graphite portfolio in Finland, is pleased to announce that drilling has started at its Aitolampi graphite prospect in Finland, part of its 100 per cent owned Exploration Permit Pitkäjärvi 1.

The Company plans an approximate 2,000 metre drill programme, up to 30 drill holes, split in two phases. The first phase will drill 1,150 metres, taking two to three weeks to complete and samples for testwork will be shipped concurrently with drilling. The second phase of drilling will start in the summer of this year, after all of the information from the first phase has been analysed in full.

Kurt Budge, CEO, commented:

“I am delighted to announce that we have started the drilling programme at Aitolampi which will significantly enhance our geological understanding of the prospect, and provide representative sample material for further testwork.

“We look forward to providing shareholders with further updates on our progress and findings in due course.”
