Beowulf wants to build an iron ore mine at Kallak deposit outside Jokkmokk and has a longer waiting for a mining concession. In November 2016 received Norrbotten County Administrative Board of extra time from the Mountain State, dealing with matters relating to the exploration and exploitation of minerals, to answer questions about the project.
In early February, however, announced the provincial government to the decision data do not provide sufficient guidance on how Laponia affected by any mining activity, which is why the matter returned to the Mining Inspectorate.
According to the company has a complete application has been submitted and processed, including a comprehensive environmental description, already in 2013 and 2014. This has also been confirmed by the provincial government, says Beowulf.

Åsa Persson also notes that the information contained in Beowulf's actions.
"Possibly, you may need supplements," she says.
When a decision can be made, or which way it leans, the mine inspector did not say in the current situation.
"I hope that the process now under way should take as little time as possible, that we already know next week what direction we are heading," says Åsa Persson SR.
