ARCTIC MINERALS HAS BEEN GRANTED NEW EXTRACTION PERMITS AT THE BIDJOVAGGE, NORWAY GOLD-COPPER PROJECT

Arctic Minerals AB ("Arctic Minerals" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that the Directorate of Mineral Management (DMF), the Norwegian authority which administers the mineral law in Norway, has granted Arctic Minerals four new extraction (mining) permits (according to the Norwegian Mineral Law "Extraction Permits") at the company's Bidjovagge copper-gold project. The new permits cover a total of 2.3 km2.

The company previously held five extraction permits and therefore now has a total of nine extraction permits totalling 7.16 km2 at Bidjovagge, as well as an exploration permit covering 1 km2. All mineral rights in Bidjovagge are held by the Company's subsidiary, Arctic Gold AB.

Arctic Minerals has held the mineral rights at Bidjovagge since 2010. A scoping study was made in that year by the Finnish consulting company, Outotec Oy. This study identified mineral resources in the "indicated resources" category of 1.36 million tonnes with 2.74 grams per tonne gold and 1.21% copper. A further 40,000 tonnes were identified in the "inferred resources" category with 1.7 grams per tonne gold and 1% copper. In addition, the study identified 300,000 tonnes of stockpiled ore with 1.79 grams per tonne gold and 0.6% copper.

The company's management believes that there is good potential to increase mineral resources with continued exploration. However, since 2013 the development of the project has been hampered by local political opposition. The company is hopeful about the possibilities of finding a solution that can lead to the successful development of the mining project.

Arctic Minerals har genomfört kärnborrning i Joint Venture-kopparprojektet med Rio Tinto

Arctic Minerals har genomfört kärnborrning vid Peräpohjas Joint Venture-kopparprojekt i Finland. Kärnborrning har genomförts i tre målområden och resulterat i värdefull information för att prioritera målområden och utveckla en geologisk modell i mer detaljerad skala. I planerna för 2021 ingår nu borrning med en lätt borrigg för att provta de djupaste delarna av moränen (Base-of-Till), vidare undersökning och provtagning av borrkärnor samt ytterligare geologiskt fältarbete. Ytterligare kärnborrning kan också komma att utföras. Bolaget har för projektet ansökt om totalt 13 nya malmletningstillstånd täckande 487 km2.


Arctic Minerals has carried out diamond drilling in the Peräpohja copper Joint Venture project with Rio Tinto

Arctic Minerals has carried out deep diamond drilling at its Peräpohja copper Joint Venture project in Finland. The drilling program has been carried out at three different targets and resulted in valuable information for the prioritization of target areas and for a target scale 3D geological model. Further plans for 2021 include drilling with a light drill rig in order to carry out deeper sampling of Base-of-Till, additional logging and sampling of archive core and also additional geological fieldwork. Further deep diamond drilling may also be carried out. The Company has applied for in total 13 new exploration permits totalling 487 km2 in the Peräpohja copper project.


Positiva resultat från guldprojektet Nutukka i Finland och fortsatt prospektering med lätt borrigg

Nya resultat från provtagningen bekräftar ett kluster av guldbärande jordprov, troligen av lokalt ursprung. Baserat på de positiva resultaten från prospekteringen2020 har Arctic Minerals ansökt om malmletningstillstånd i Nutukka, där klusterområdet ingår. Bolaget planerar nu att genomföra undersökningsborrning med lätt borrigg under sommarfältsäsongen 2021, med målet att provta de djupaste delarna av bottenmoränen och av bergytan. Även magnetiska mätningar med hjälp av drönare planeras. Fortsatt prospektering kan också komma att omfatta undersökningsdikning med grävare liksom än mer moränprovtagning.


Positive sampling results from the Nutukka gold project in Finland and further exploration with a light drill rig

New sampling results confirm cluster of gold-bearing soil samples likely to be of local origin. Following the overall positive results from the exploration in 2020, the Company has applied for an exploration permit at Nutukka, including the cluster areas. The Company now plans for drilling with a light drill rig during the 2021 summer field season in order to carry out deeper sampling of base of till and top of bedrock. Also planned is a magnetic survey to be carried out by drone. Further exploration work may also include trenching with use of an excavator, as well as further soil sampling.
