... has never gone against the recommendation of the CAB, so the chances of that happening is slim to none - however, JIMAB has promised to take this to the government in case of a "no", so I guess that's what we'll be waiting for next.
Also, since we just elected a new government in Sweden, one that consists partly of the Green Party (who has said a firm no to a mine in Kallak on every level, local and national), the appointment of the man/woman in charge of the Industry Ministry will be important to us (since this is an reindeer vs mining-issue) - this person will be presented on Friday.
I'm pretty much married to this stock, so I will probably buy some more in a few days to lower my average some (a bad idea, but that's my "solution" anyhow).
For them to allow so much time and money to be spent to assay the area and not grant exploitation is criminal. Could understand if it was a small deposit but we have a world class asset. No one will touch Sweden with a barge pole if we get screwed. That article screams no. Sounds like my local authority, full of knobs who got bullied at school
The second bit of info uncovered by Subtle was probably always going to be the case, in my view. All said and done though, it's about what will be for the greater good in the end, and Kallak is a National Interest deposit. No point in having that if nothing is going to be allowed to be done with it.
Have to hold firm and wait for the actual decision.
It could be argued that allowing companies to explore and test mine creates a 'legitimate expectation' that they might not just be wasting their effing time and money.
Perverse really as merely exploration hardly benefits the local economy as much as mining.
Of course, there may just be perfectly valid reasons why this has been rejected ie the transportation issue was NOT fully addressed in the EIA. Let's not exclude the possibility that Beowulf have not been as thorough as they could have been. The clarity of the application may not rest on its longevity.
This link gives a synopsis of the convoluted process:
Good work anyway Sub. We have to take the rough with the smooth. Can't just uncover the good stuff. I don't think it matters what we do, the CAB won't be happy, so let's hope the MI thinks it's a minor issue.
Me too, it's a cruel game if that is the case, to allow such investment to go into the ground, the question is ~ does it highlight that the MI are in favour giving the go-ahead for work plans to drill and blast or does the MI give out licenses freely in the first instance to encourage exploration as part of their job?
thanks subtle , but i still hope with my heart and wallet we will get it , I still refuse to believe that they would allow us to go this far ...drill , test mine etc , to turn it down .What message does that send out to other explorers ??
