"County Board determines that the ore transport threatens to cause great harm to reindeer husbandry. Therefore, Jokkmokk Iron Mines AB ( Jimab ) no to his application for a mining concession in Kallak .
- Our position is based primarily on the company in its application is not ready made ​​it clear in what way you want to take out the ore. There are four alternative ways and we have no idea which way to choose. Thus we do not know either what the consequences are for the reindeer , which is in strong connection to Laponia World Heritage status , says Governor Sven-Erik Österberg.
NSD revealed the county administrative position last night. It is the second time that the authority does thumbs down for Jimabs application.
The county board also deems that a mine and ore shipments , regardless of the option chosen , threatening to cause " irreversible damage " in the area. The shipments crossing winter pastures and migration routes as samebys been using for a long time .
- We believe that the haul roads will affect the area much more than the mine itself . It is sometimes uncharted territory where you intend to go forward with road or rail , says Sven -Erik Österberg.
CAB's referral arrived Bergsstaten yesterday.
- We have not had time to read us on the decision yet . We must look at what the law says and how the provincial government thinking, says Bergmästaregatan Åsa Persson.
Bergsstaten would also examine whether the provincial government weighed in aspects that do not really belong to the mining concession without belonging to the later stage , the trial in the Land and Environment Court.
- We look at what is to be tested now and what is to be tested late , says Åsa Persson.
Mountain State can not go against the provincial government . Either you agree with - or by sending the case to the Government for a decision .
It has never happened to Bergsstaten gone against the provincial government and has referred the matter to the government."
Funny old day. as usual in these circumstances lots of doom and gloomers and those with a hidden addenda.
The AIM never ceases to amaze me. Yesterday buys were at one point exceeding sells by close to 1million shares and the price never moved. Today sells are exceeding buys by 900k and we are down 30.5%.
Nice to hear a few calm voices like you and one or two of the old hands. It will be interesting to see where this closes. One of our guest derampers tipped a fall of 63%. My view is that it will close at a lot better than the current -30.4%. We will know in about 4 hours.
Mrs44 and I are quitting France tomorrow for a short trip down to Spain with the Spanish owners of our local bar. Herself is currently ironing my drinking trousers so all of today's worries will fade away like early morning mist after the 10th glass of Rioja.
you are quite correct it is not a decision but it is an opinion from a governmental body charged with monitoring of environmental issues. It is thus, in my view, highly persuasive. It differs from a Sami opinion as they are not an emanation of the state but a separate interest grouping whose parliament, for example,has no jurisdiction over non-Sami.
As for the news sensitivity I am afraid I disagree. In the RNS of 29 November 2013 it was deemed price sensitive enough to report that the CAB had requested more information etc. It should thus be deemed price sensitive enough that they have subsequently issued a 'highly persuasive' adverse opinion.
your positivity is wonderful, What got you in to this share if you Don t mind me asking? When and How much are you in and at What? This spells disaster a long time ago for me. Nevermind 2p! I truly hope if you are a genuine investor that you are doing ok.
I'm not sure you can blame either the media, CAB or the company on this one although it may be news sensitive to us there is no insider dealing, we need to remember this is an OPINION on whether a licence should be issued it bears no more relevance than the SAMI opinion. It is not a refusal of the application this is for the MI to decide (or as expected forward to government) There is no requirement for the CAB to contact BEM with their OPINION and it is likely they have only heard the same as us however unlike us they will need the official papers to make any reasonable response not just some media/social website headlines.
