It is really strange how many people here making investments and created such a prospective company do not recognise simple fact that they have, as private investors and the company as a legal entity certain rights, which no one allowed to violate. But Swedish authorities not only ignoring all the rights. They are deliberately destroying the company during more then last three years. And in such humiliating situations many of you calling to sit quietly and wait for the positive outcome. Truly "buffet syndrome" when we are taken hostage and here are whispers around to sit quietly for not to be shot. And here is no single thought even or question but what if the company, would just start preparations and express its intention to appeal for example, to the Court of Arbitration in The Hague? Yes, I know how many of you will immediately write the frightened posts here not to do so because the Swedes will shoot us. But, I would like to warn these people and ask to remember: Without some really serious steps in defending our rights we will be "shot" anyway, the company destroyed, and our investment irrevocably lost.
The problem is, without us still having any idea of how long this will take, the Company is unable to plan anything around its flagship project. Our progress has stalled quite markedly over the last three years and the market value has really suffered. I don't think it's acceptable if we go into next year in the same situation.
The other projects are secondary concerns in my opinion. We need the flagship project to have reached a secure stage. No doubt Kurt is cooperating with all parties, but he also has to be strong for us and not just accept whatever is thrown his way.
Agreed that pestering the MI would probably be unhelpful. Regular contact in a positive spirit, though e.g. 'is there any additional information I can give to help you make a decision' might give the necessary prods. (Hope this doesn't sound patronising as I'm sure Kurt's on the case).
Fair points. I don't however accept that Kurt can just allow it to ride into next year, that is my point. I'm not suggesting he badgers Åsa, only that he asks for a timescale. After such a wait on our application, I don't feel that would be an unreasonable request for him to make.
Interesting reading all the comments on the timescale and what should be done and I am as hacked off as everybody else with the constant delays.If the Swedes are looking for future investment in the mining industry then surely they must realise they are not doing themselves any favours with what is going on with Beowulf at the moment.On the other hand I cannot see what more Kurt can so to speed up the process.I think if he were to keep badgering and overdoing it then human nature being what it is then the MI would surely dig their heels in and probably put us to the back of the queue.If on the other hand if he is being cooperative in every department which I believe he is then just maybe they might respond and put us at the front.Pure guess work on my part but I know what I would do if I was in the MI shoes.We have said it many times here but patience is the key and I hope we get our just rewards as we will have been tested to the absolute limit.GLA
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.
