General information about the Company

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

The Company owns approximately 99% of the subsidiary Vilhelmina Mineral AB (publ)l, which is focusing on the development of copper and zinc deposits in the Nordic region. In Sweden, the Company owns Stekenjokk, where a total of approximately 7 million tons of ore was mined between 1976 and 1988. According to previous resource estimates, there is a remaining indicated mineral resource of approximately 7.4 million tons with grades of 1.17% Cu, 3.01% Zn and 47 g/ton Ag (at cut-off grade of 0.9% Cu). In Norway, the Company is owner in the Joma field, where approximately 11.5 million tons of ore was processed between 1972 and 1998 with an average grade of 1.5% Cu and 1.5% Zn. The Joma field (excluding Gjersvik) is estimated to contain an additional indicated mineral resource of approximately 5.7 million tons with grades amounting to 1.55% Cu and 0.82% Zn (at cut-off grade 0.8% Cu).

In 2017, the Company acquired the Cypriot company Mezhlisa Resources Cyprus Ltd ("Mezhlisa"). At the end of 2020, the Company transferred the ownership of all shares in Mezhlisa to the newly formed subsidiary Mezhlisa Resources AB. Through the Russian subsidiary OOO Bakcharneftegaz (BNG), Mezhlisa controls 71-1 exploration and production licenses in the Tomsk region of Russia. Mezhlisa is currently registered as the owner of 72.3809 percent of BNG. Mezhlisa has, based on that, access to the exploration and evaluation project that BNG acquired at a public auction in August 2010, license 71-1 "Ellej-Igajskoje" in Tomsk Oblast, Russia. The Company conducts an exploration program of oil and gas assets on licenses 71-1 which has shown significant potential.

In addition, the Company owns the nickel projects Rönnbäcken (which is Europe's largest known undeveloped nickel resource) and Orrbäcken in Sweden. According to the mining consulting company SRK, the Rönnbäcken project contains a mineral resource of approximately 574 million tons with an average grade of 0.174% nickel ("measured and indicated"). The preliminary economic assessment that SRK completed predicts a production of 26,000 tons of high-grade nickel concentrate per year for 20 years, which would be a significant proportion of Sweden's total annual use of nickel which thereby has a strategic value. Orrbäcken is an exploration license that is considered to have potential as a nickel deposit.

The Company owns the gold project Haveri, through its subsidiary Palmex Mineral AB, which in 2014 carried out a so-called Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) prepared by SRK Consulting. This report estimates 1.56 million oz. historically inferred mineral resource of gold equivalents with a grade of 0.93 g/t gold.) The Company also owns the gold project Kattisavan which is mainly 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.

Bluelake Minerals dotterbolag Vilhelmina Mineral har inlämnat ansökan om Natura 2000-tillstånd

Som tidigare meddelats har Bluelake Mineral AB (publ) ("Bolaget" eller "Bluelake Mineral") via sitt svenska dotterbolag Vilhelmina Mineral AB (publ) ("Vilhelmina Mineral") ansökt om bearbetningskoncession inom undersökningstillstånden Levi K nr 1 och Stekenjokk K nr 1 i Vilhelmina kommun. Länsstyrelsen i Jämtland har i sitt yttrande till Bergsstaten tidigare tillstyrkt att bearbetningskoncession för Stekenjokk K nr 1 ska beviljas. Länsstyrelsen i Västerbotten har under pågående prövning av koncessionsansökan dock meddelat att en prövning enligt Natura 2000 behövs för bägge de ansökta bearbetningskoncessionerna innan en slutlig bedömning kan ske. Vilhelmina Mineral har nu därför lämnat in en separat ansökan om Natura 2000-tillstånd enligt miljöbalken till Länsstyrelsen i Västerbotten.


Bluelake Mineral's subsidiary Vilhelmina Mineral has submitted application for Natura 2000 permit

As previously announced, Bluelake Mineral AB (publ) ("the Company" or "Bluelake Mineral"), has via its Swedish subsidiary Vilhelmina Mineral AB (publ) ("Vilhelmina Mineral") applied for an exploitation concession within the exploration permits Levi K no. 1 and Stekenjokk K no. 1 in Vilhelmina municipality. In its statement to the Swedish Mining Directorate, the County Administrative Board of Jämtland has previously recommended that an exploitation concession for Stekenjokk K no. 1 should be granted. However, during the ongoing examination of the exploitation concession application the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten has declared that an examination according to Natura 2000 is required for both of the applied exploitation concessions before a final assessment can be made. Therefore, Vilhelmina Mineral has now submitted a separate application for a Natura 2000 permit in accordance with the Environmental Act to the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten.
