General information about the Company

Bluelake Mineral AB (publ) 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 Minera AB, 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 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 668 million tons with an average grade of 0.176% 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 Mining Oy, 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.) Kattisavan 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.

Som tidigare meddelats har Bluelake Mineral AB (publ) ("Bluelake Mineral" eller "Bolaget") via sitt svenska dotterbolag Vilhelmina Mineral AB ("Vilhelmina Mineral") ansökt om bearbetningskoncession inom undersökningstillstånden Levi K nr 1 och Stekenjokk K nr 1 i Vilhelmina kommun.

Länsstyrelsen i Västerbotten har under pågående prövning av koncessionsansökan dock som tidigare meddelats angett att en prövning enligt Natura 2000 behövs för bägge de ansökta bearbetningskoncessionerna innan en slutlig bedömning kan ske. Vilhelmina Mineral lämnade därför den 3 maj 2021 in en separat ansökan om Natura 2000-tillstånd enligt miljöbalken. Länsstyrelsen i Västerbotten har nu efter genomgång av denna utredning meddelat att en komplettering behöver ske.
