Found by humble private investors in U.K. Which, frankly, makes a mockery of local Swedish bureaucrats spending 4 years with their heads up their *rses and then deciding it's all too much for them and they can't express an opinion. Good to see BEM's legal team are now on this. I've been saying for a couple of years that any half decent legal firm would rip the swedes apart for their negligence and unjustifiable delays and red herrings.
To put the threat of Kallak to Laponia into perspective:
There are as of July 2016, 1052 UNESCO sites. 814 cultural, 203 natural, and 35 mixed properties, in 165 states.
There have only been 2 sites which have had their UNESCO status withdrawn. 1. An Oryx Sanctuary in Oman, where the government reduced it's size by 90% for Oil. The result decimated the Oryx population through habitat loss and poaching. 2. The Dresden Elbe Valley. A picturesque City in Germany had a large modern transport bridge built through the middle crossing the valley.
World Heritage sites may lose their designation when the UNESCO World Heritage Committee determines that the designated site is not properly managed or protected. First, however, the committee would place a site it is concerned about on its list of 'World Heritage in Danger', and attempt to negotiate with the local authorities to remedy the situation. If remediation fails, the committee then revokes its designation.
As of 2012, there are 38 entries (17 natural, 21 cultural) on the List of World Heritage in Danger. Laponia is NOT one of them.
The total area of Laponia is about 9,400 square kilometres (3,600 sq mi), making it the world's largest unmodified nature area to be still cultured by natives—the natives in this case being the reindeer herding Sami people. Kallak site is outside of Laponia and 13.6 square kilometres (5.25 Sq mi) 0.15% the size of Laponia.
"So, to put some perspective on this with the World Heritage Site. This picture is taken from the company EIA sid.84. So there are a number of mines that are significantly closer Kallak and reasonably have transport mm. affecting reindeer husbandry. All these mines have apparently not led to UNESCO threatened to withdraw world heritage status. The mines are certainly closer to the "big" cities and civilization, but the distance to the world heritage is significantly less. What I want to say with this? Well, that UNESCO would drag the world heritage status p.g.a Kallak is osanolikt, Laponioa affected indirectly before, and seems to be doing quite well anyway.
The image shows existing mining operations as green dots. These mining operations are closer to Laponia than the Kallak-site and I Assume That hey have impact on the reindeer-hearding. UNESCO Have not threaten to revoke the world heritage status due to Those mining operations, and I'd be surprised if They did it Because of Beowulf Mining operation in Kallak. The image is taken from the EIA, page 84th"
