Eric - it's done to deter you from sticking yer snout in the trough. Also it helps to put off any common people from jumping aboard. We don't need them. This is a discerning share for discerning investors. Now feck off before dufresne sets the huskies on you. :-0
Jokkmokk The man who found the deposit in Kallak may now be the one who takes over from Fred Boman.
It is the company's technical director Jan-Ola Larsson, born in Kiruna, which is now sailing up as the current candidate to take over as executive director of Jokkmokk Iron Mines.
- We are about to sort the front of people, we discuss the issue on the board right now. We will see when it is finally determined, says Jan-Ola Larsson when NSD reaches him on Wednesday morning.
Jan-Ola Larsson who has demonstrated Beowulf deposit Kallak from the very beginning. NSD has previously told he is a doctoral student in geology, has worked for LKAB's exploration company, has been Head of Department at SGU and worked for private companies in Canada and Brazil before. Although he has been with the whole Kallakresan he is a bit of an unknown, he has managed to stay away from the limelight despite all the tours around Jokkmokk Iron Mines.
He would be willing to become president.
- I'm psyched, it's me. I'm psyched to push this whole project forward, said Jan-Ola Larsson.
The news that Fred Boman chooses to step down was unexpected, according to Larsson.
- It came suddenly and was not planned. It was on his own initiative, and then we find ourselves in it.
It is speculated that you've kicked him?
- You can say what you want, but it suddenly came to us.
What has Fred Boman meant for the project?
- He is a mining guy with a lot of experience when it comes to building a mine, in the initial stage. In that way, he was a capacity that was needed when we started the whole thing. Then, the character Fred Boman. He has a special jargon that may be disturbing in some quarters.
During Wednesday hits Beowulf including Jokkmokk. There will also be visits out Kallak for the new board members.
"Although the CAB said no to Jokkmokk Iron Mines' application for an exploitation concession of an iron ore deposit in Kallak outside Jokkmokk is the owner Beowulf not worried.
- In our industry must take ups and downs all the time, there is nothing to give up, but we have a clear plan ahead, says Jan-Ola Larsson, who is technical director for Beowulf.
There is no doubt?
- No, I can not say, it would have been easier if it had been a downhill but we are used to having the uphills.
County Board considers that the effects of feasible routes would be detrimental to the reindeer herders in the area and therefore do not recommend Mountain State to grant the concession.
It's not the first time Jokkmokk Iron Mines applications get criticism. Last year, said County Board that the application was so deficient that it could not take a position on it. But according to Jan-Ola Larsson, there may be alternatives to road or rail transport as the company is now about to introduce the Mining Inspectorate.
- So we've got that thing with pipeline shipments, pumping things. A solution in the pipe from the mine to the end station, but there are also new technologies that are entirely new and very interesting that we have been offered, he says.
Nothing you can say nothing to anyone about?
- No, you'll have to wait a few days for how the development goes, but it's interesting chapter to be written here.
For Beowulf Chairman Clive Sinclair-Poulton, it is obvious that it will be a mine Kallak eventually.
- If you look at it logically and objectively, there are so many benefits to Jokkmokk and Norrbotten have a mine in Kallak we are confident that there will be a mine in due course, says Sinclair-Poulton."
