UPDATE ON EVA K NO. 1 EXPLOITATION CONCESSION
Today, Copperstone Resources AB ("Copperstone") to the Swedish Government has filed follow-up information regarding an objection to award exploitation concession Eva k no. 1. In Copperstone's view, the Mining Inspector's decision to award the exploitation concession is expected to be the most likely and final outcome.
10 November 2017, the Mining Inspector awarded Copperstone an exploitation concession, Eva k no. 1 (34ha) in Arvidsjaur municipality, Sweden. The decision was objected in due time and in May 2018, Copperstone received a request for supplementary information from the Swedish Government. Copperstone has since conducted meetings and discussions with the respective parties.
In our view, the meetings and discussions (primarily relating to roads, minerals, water and dust) have been productive, informative and encouraging, touching upon already at this stage also indirectly affected interests of a future mine site in the Copperstone area. As a result, and in line with the long term vision, Copperstone will introduce and include also areas such as Högheden, Stöverberget (and others) to information meetings currently sporadically conducted with inhabitants in e g Södra Sandträsk, Glommersträsk.
In Copperstone's view, the Mining Inspector's decision to award the Eva exploitation concession is expected to be the most likely and final outcome.
