The thing is, it seems that Åsa has told everybody except Kurt that it will take six months or however long. We could do with it in writing, to discern that it isn't just radio speak, off the cuff talk and perhaps flippant. Naturally, Åsa won't give a short timescale, heaven forbid anything has to be done with a sense of urgency. That's why I believe Kurt needs to keep pressing for an early outcome, or at least an official timeline and not just accept something Åsa has uttered in a radio interview to other parties. In all fairness, a decision is well overdue.
After all this, the question is, will we still have to complete an Environmental Licence application in the future? As in, like the old days. Lol. I hope not, but wouldn't be surprised if the Norra Karr ruling was just an added hurdle.
Google Translate doesn't get that one right - the demonstrators pictured being carried away in August of 2013 is protesting against test mining ("test explosions", which generates the mistranslation), probably the one below (taken from Beowulfs newsletter from November 2013):
"A major milestone on Kallak’s path towards potential production was the completion in August 2013 of the fieldwork for our test mining sampling programme on a defined area of the Kallak North deposit with approximately 400 tonnes of mineralised material being transported 750 kilometres to The Geological Survey of Finland’s (“GTK”) (http://en.gtk.fi) facility in Finland in October and early November, for analysis."
Time, yes I agree with you. The new rules would have applied at the environmental stage; so nothing we didn't need to address as part of the course in any event, just brought forward, probably makes sense when you think about it. I remain confident we will be given the concession and I'm holding to this: "At best, we have time Kallak matter in the fall". But it makes no odds...I am content with my investment for the time being.
* "It is not just Kallak but we also have a number of other matters in Norrbotten. It's a pretty big job and most likely it will drag on" - speaking of the scenario that the Government will hand Kallak back to the Mountain State in a newspaper interview, April 11.
