Emphasis of matters
We would like to draw attention to the description of regulatory and political risk regarding the Bidjovagge project and the Board's position regarding the valuation of the project as stated in the statutory administration report and in Note 3. We have not modified our statements on this basis.
The disclosure does not affect the other statements made by the Company's auditor, where the Company's auditor recommends the Annual General Meeting that the profit be dealt with in accordance with the proposal in the statutory administration report and that the members of the Board and the Managing Director be discharged from liability for the financial year.
Since 2010, Arctic Minerals has, through its subsidiary Arctic Gold AB, held mineral rights at the closed Bidjovagge gold-copper mine in Finnmark in Northern Norway. The mine, previously owned by Outokumpu, was in operation during the period 1985-1991.
A Scoping study was made by the consulting company Outotec in 2010. In 2012, the estimate was updated and the tonnage was then 2.06 million tonnes in the class Indicated mineral resourcegrading 1.6 gram per ton of gold and 1.15% copper. Further, in the class Inferred mineral resource there was 0.24 million tonnes grading 2.6 grams per ton gold and 0.9% copper. In the area of the closed Bidjovagge mine there are several heaps of "marginal ore" with estimated grades (based on sampling) 1.79 gram per ton gold and 0.6% copper.
The project is currently stalled due to the political situation in Norway. The Board, however, considers the prospects of Arctic Gold AB receiving positive information regarding the possibilities of obtaining necessary permits is realistic in the long term and thus considers that the value of the asset can be justified.
