Item 6

As previously announced in July of this year the Company transferred all shares in the Company's former subsidiary Palmex Mining Oy to Mahvie Minerals AB ("Mahvie Minerals") and in connection therewith subscribed for shares in Mahvie Minerals, after which the Company holds 50.1 percent of all oustanding shares and votes in Mahvie Minerals. As previously announced, the intention is to distribute all shares held by the Company in Mahvie Minerals to the shareholders in Bluelake Mineral through a tax-free so called Lex Asea dividend, in connection with which the shares in Mahvie Minerals are also intended to be listed on a multilateral trading facility.

More information about Mahvie Minerals is available on the Company's website www.bluelakemineral.com/en/investors/corporate-governance/general-meetings/ 

In light of the above, the Board of Directors proposes that the EGM resolves to distribute profits to the shareholders of the Company consisting of all the Company's 54,166,485 shares in Mahvie Minerals (the "Shares"). As of August 1, 2022, the Shares have a book value of a total of SEK 18,804,000 in the Company's balance sheet, i.e. approximately SEK 0.35/share.

The dividend means that the shareholders in the Company are entitled to receive one (1) share in Mahvie Minerals for each (1) existing share held on the record date for the dividend in the Company. The Board is authorized to determine the record date for the profit distribution, however, that the record date must not fall later than the day before the next annual general meeting. The Board shall, in connection with the determination of the record date for the profit distribution, publish the decision on the determination of the record date.

Furthermore, the Board has taken into account the rules in the Swedish Companies Act, Chapter 18, Section 5, and can thus state that SEK 49,468,784 of the unrestricted equity established in the most recently approved balance sheet is still available to the general meeting. Thus, even after the proposed dividend, there will be full coverage for the Company's restricted equity.

Number of shares and votes in the Company

At the time of the issuance of this notice, the total number of registered shares and votes in the Company amounts to 54,166,485. The Company does not hold any own shares.

Miscellaneous

The complete proposals under item 6 will be available at the Company's office and website at the latest two (2) weeks prior the general meeting. Copies of the documents will be sent, free of charge, on request to such shareholders who provide their address from the date they come available. Shareholders of the Company are, where the board of directors believes that it that it may take place without significant harm to the Company, at the general meeting entitled to receive information in respect of any circumstances which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda (i.e. the right to request information pursuant to Chapter 7, Sections 32 and 57 of the Swedish Companies Act).

General information about the Company

Bluelake Mineral AB (public) is an independent Swedish company active in exploration and mine development of copper, zinc, nickel and gold resources.

The Company owns approximately 99% of the subsidiary Vilhelmina Mineral AB, which is focusing on development of copper and zinc deposits in the Nordic region. In Sweden, the Company owns Stekenjokk-Levi project, where a total of approximately 7 million tonnes of ore were mined between 1976 and 1988 with an average grade 1.5% Cu and 3.5% Zn. Stekenjokk-Levi is, according to a recent Mineral Resource Estimate by SRK Consulting, containing inferred mineral resources of approximately 6.7 million tonnes with 0.9 % Cu, 2.7 % Zn, 0.6 % Pb, 55 Ag g/t and 0.2 g/t Au for Stekenjokk and inferred mineral resources of 5.1 million tonnes with 1.0 % Cu, 1.5 % Zn, 0.1 % Pb, 22 Ag g/t and 0.2 g/t Au for Levi (at a NSR cut-off of 60 USD/t). In Norway, the Company is owner of Joma Gruver AS which holds exploitation rights for the Joma field, where approximately 11.5 million tonnes of ore were processed between 1972 and 1998 with an average grade of 1.5% Cu and 1.5% Zn. The Joma field (excluding Gjersvik) is, according to a recent mineral estimate by SRK Consulting, containing indicated mineral resources of approximately 6 million tonnes with grades amounting to 1.00 % Cu and 1.66 % Zn and inferred resources of 1.2 million tonnes with grades 1.2 % Cu and 0.7 % Zn (at cut-off of 50 USD/t).

In addition, the Company holds exploitation concessions for the nickel project Rönnbäcken (which is Europe's largest known undeveloped nickel resource) and an exploration permit for Orrbäcken, both which are located in Sweden. According to a recently updated mineral resource update in by the mining consulting company SRK, the Rönnbäcken project contains a mineral resource of 600 million tonnes with an average grade of 0.18% Ni, 0.003% Co and 5.7% Fe ("measured and indicated"). The updated preliminary economic assessment that SRK completed predicts a production of 23,000 tonnes of nickel, 660 tonnes of cobalt and 1.5 million tonnes of iron per year for 20 years, which would be a significant share of Sweden's total annual use of nickel which thereby has a strategic value. Orrbäcken is considered to have potential as a nickel deposit.

The Company also owns 50.1% in the company Mahvie Minerals AB, which is a Nordic exploration and mine development company with a focus on base metals, precious metals and battery metals. Mahvie Minerals operates, among other things, in Mo i Rana in Norway, which is a well-known industrial and mining area comprising both smelters and mining of iron ore. Mahvie Minerals holds about 40 exploration permits in Mo i Rana where there is a closed previous mine with residual mineralization containing zinc, copper and other metals and a current potential estimated by Mahvie Minerals of over 5 Mton with a grade of 3.8% zinc equivalents. Mahvie Minerals plans to expand potential and mineral resources via exploration and begin development of mining operations. Mahvie Minerals also owns the Haveri gold project, which is held by the subsidiary Palmex Mining Oy and which was recently acquired from Bluelake Mineral. In 2014, the consulting company SRK Consulting carried out a preliminary profitability assessment (Preliminary Economic Assessment). This report provides an estimate of 1.56 million oz. historical assumed mineral resource in the form of gold equivalents with a grade of 0.93 g/t gold. The company plans to distribute the shares in Mahvie Minerals to the shareholders of Bluelake Mineral in the fall of 2022.

Further, the Company holds an exploration permit for Kattisavan which is considered to have potential as a gold resource and is located within the so-called gold line, close to projects such as Svartliden, Fäboliden and Barsele.
