If the MI rejects the application, then, the reason(s) would have to be most valid. These reasons would become the official argument(s) against a mine. That is a lot of heavy ammunition for many types. If the will is there for a mine to go ahead, and the Kallaks designation strongly suggests that it is, then the MI will have to walk the talk! Politicians who are pro mining at Kallak won’t take kindly to fence sitters, whose actions have forced them to renegotiate, perhaps on agreed issues! A lot, by many is going on, as Kallak’s 19.58 post demonstrates. When all of those interested have agreed what their slice of the 600 cake actually is, (compensation) then the MI will inform the world what he has known for a long time – whatever that may be!! atb
The CAB has to give its view on the environmental impact assessment though, which has to be considered by the MI. I am not sure it's possible for the MI to say yes without the CAB approving this - can you confirm otherwise?
- Therefore, we hope that the mine goes ahead, it could be a boost as it has become for Pajala. Now it is so that young people move out . Therefore , very few jokkmokkare who is up there at the test mining and protesters. There are professionals protesters who come there , who ****s machines and cut down tires. It's nonsense , it's not serious. A portion of them was in Gotland and protested against plans for limestone quarry there.
Jörgen Näsström is aware of the protests from the Sami villages in the area: - Reindeer is great in Jokkmokk , but I think you can combine both mining and reindeer . It is usually supposed to be able to resolve such conflicts. There is ongoing no reindeer in the area and is not a migratory route , according to him.
Tor Lundberg Tuorda have the exact opposite : - Where is winter beet country and the area itself is additionally a bottleneck , the Sami village is narrowest where .
Disagreement then about how much impact a future mining operations actually would have. No one denies , however, that the environment will be affected. The local council has, among other things, therefore demanded that an environmental tax is introduced in mining :
- Consideration is to increase the fee for mineral extraction and sure enough, they charge higher fees in other countries. But it's money that goes to the state. An environmental tax to the municipality where mining takes place would be better, because then the money would go directly to the municipality concerned , says Anna -Greta Kvickström . Source: DA
The infected the debate on mining browning Kallak in Jokkmokk municipality continues . Saturday 24/8 ready sameby Sirges demonstration against the plans.
Nuclear tests for possible mining Kallak stirs up emotions. Mining Jobs pitted against nature and Sami reindeer . The different views have been most marked directly on the site of the test mining . Opponents have tried to stop drilling and blasting , and the police have been summoned to protect the mining company. But the issue is also discussed vividly both large meetings and in social media where - at least - six different Facebook groups formed by opponents , supporters and undecided.
It is British-owned mining company Jokkmokk Iron Mines AB, drilling and blasting, to possibly start iron mining fyra mil outside Jokkmokk society. According to the company , a mining establishment provide approximately 400 jobs in five years . The municipal management have focused on :
- We've lost 900 residents in recent years, we must have new jobs to survive, says Anna -Greta Kvickström ( s), the Municipal Vice-Chairman.
- Now we are just over 5000 inhabitants, in the early 1980s, we have 12 , 000. Then there were jobs at waterfalls and in the forest, now they have disappeared. We need tax dollars and jobs to at least stop the exodus .
But Jobs rejected the argument of the opponents:
- It's a mantra that mining hugs reiterate , you live in a dream . But we have pricked the bubble , says Tor Lundberg Tuorda , who lives in the village Randijaur , not far from Kallak .
- Will it be mining , people will not move here with family. The man or the woman working there - but the long commute and comes to Cardiff by bus or plane. Then drag the home - and underestimate in the municipality of residence or home country. We must not increased population base , without increased costs for maintenance, housing and more.
- Also: Now it's about iron ore. But when the state sponsored rail for a few billion will be easier to pick up the copper. Already prospectus served for two copper mines with the exploration permit. And it gets much worse than iron mining, including requirements on giant dams - that could burst, as they did for Boliden in Seville a few years ago.
Tor Lundberg Tuorda a Sami. He engaged himself not with reindeer , but brings out the alternative :
- It has already been here for thousands of years. There is a lot to develop , it can be refined much more here on the spot rather than sending off reindeer . Moreover I want to see a commitment to the highest growing industry in Sweden : tourism. When you build a sustainable and wise future.
IF Metall Title 2 of Norrbotten has not taken a position officially . but :
- When talking to people , it is the very few who are negative, because you see what utvecklig it would mean for Jokkmokk , says Ombudsman Jörgen Nä
__js: No. Landowners will not get any new powers. They'll just get more information.
"- Information for the person owns or uses of land where exploration is ongoing should be simple and clear. It should be clear how the work will proceed, how damages should be regulated and how they can affect how the work is done, 'says Minister Annie Loof."
Disagree with you. I think the CAB says no, and that MI say yes.
"Before we decide on the matter, we must get a final opinion of the County Board. It is not uncommon that an application for a mining concession communicated a number of times between the applicant and the County Board, before the County Board is prepared to issue a final opinion. Not until then we go to the deliberations or decisions." From MI.
And remember that MI's decision has more weight than the County Board. If the County Board says no and MI say yes, so take MI it to the Government. If the County Board and MI says no, then JIMAB have two weeks in which to decide whether if they should take it to the government or not.
