Update on Kallak North Exploitation Concession application

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 confirmation from the Mining Inspectorate of Sweden that it expects to provide the Company with the decision on the Company’s Exploitation Concession for Kallak North in January 2015.

Kurt Budge, Chief Executive Officer of Beowulf, commented:

“I am disappointed that we continue to wait for the Mining Inspectorate of Sweden’s decision, but I am satisfied that the Inspectorate is diligently reviewing all aspects of the Company’s Application and encouraged by the constructive dialogue between our organisations.  The timing of the Inspectorate’s decision does not affect the Company’s objectives for the development of Kallak.”

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, summary as follows:
