Mining Inspectorate of Sweden refers the decision regarding an Exploitation Concession for Kallak North to the Swedish Government

Beowulf (AIM: BEM; Aktietorget: BEO), the mineral exploration and development company focused on the Kallak iron ore project in northern Sweden and its Swedish exploration portfolio, has received notification that the Mining Inspectorate of Sweden has referred the the decision regarding the Exploitation Concession for Kallak North to the Swedish Government.

The Chief Mining Inspectorate has found that the prerequisites for an Exploitation Concession are fulfilled, but leaves the Government to make a decision regarding Chapters 3 and 4 of the Environmental Code, since the County of Administrative Board has not developed their opinion on this in a satisfactory way.

The Company anticipates a decision by the Swedish Government will be made in 2015, the timing of which does not affect the Company’s 2015 programme of work for Kallak.

Kurt Budge, Chief Executive Officer of Beowulf, commented:

“We are pleased that the Mining Inspectorate of Sweden has progressed the Company’s application to the Swedish Government and that the Inspectorate believes that the fundamental prerequisites for the granting of an Exploitation Concession for Kallak North have been met. This is a validation of the direction set by the Company’s previous management, studies conducted by our Swedish employees and consultants, contained with our submissions, and our focus on addressing matters of concern to our stakeholders.

We have met all fundamental requirements set by the Swedish regulations for the Application and as such we remain confident the Exploitation Concession will be approved by the Swedish Government. We will continue to work with all our Swedish stakeholders in the months ahead to strengthen relationships and advance the future development of Kallak North.”

About Us

The Kallak North iron ore deposit is located about 40km west of the Jokkmokk municipality centre in the Norrbotten County in Northern Sweden.

Local infrastructure is excellent with all-weather gravel roads passing through the project area and all parts easily reached by well used forestry tracks. A major hydroelectric power station with associated electric power-lines is located only a few kilometres to the south east. The nearest railway (the ‘Inland Railway Line’) passes approximately 40km to the east. This railway line is connected at Gällivare with the ‘Ore Railway Line’, which is used by LKAB for delivery of their iron ore material to the Atlantic harbour at Narvik (Norway) or to the Botnian Sea harbour at Luleå (Sweden).

The total Kallak project area is approximately 243km2 in size, with the Kallak North and Kallak South orebodies being centrally located, as defined by drilling covering an area approximately 3,700m in length and 350m in width. The mineral resource estimate for Kallak North and South is based on drilling conducted between 2010-2014, a total 27,895m drilled, including 131 drillholes.

The latest resource statement for the Kallak project was finalised on the 28 November 2014, following the guidelines of the JORC Code 2012 edition, summary as follows:

Category Tonnage[Mt] Fe[%] P[%] S[%]
Kallak North Indicated 105.9 27.9 0.035 0.001
Inferred 17.0 28.1 0.037 0.001
Kallak South Indicated 12.5 24.3 0.041 0.003
Inferred 16.8 24.3 0.044 0.005
Global Indicated 118.5 27.5 0.036 0.001
Inferred 33.8 26.2 0.040 0.003

The Ballek Joint Venture project comprises two exploration permits over a total area of 18.3km2, located in the Norrbotten County in Northern Sweden. In September 2008 Beowulf reported a maiden JORC Code compliant Inferred Resource estimate for the Lulepotten copper-gold deposit of 5.4Mt, grading 0.8% Cu and 0.3g/t Au.

Other attractive portfolio assets include the Nautijaure licence with potential for IOCG, Grundträsk gold project and the Munka licence area, which covers approximately 800 hectares and hosts Sweden’s largest, drill confirmed deposit of molybdenum.
