Copperstone’s exploitation concession Viscaria k no. 7 confirmed by the Swedish Government


Kiruna July 12, 2021

Copperstone Resources AB (“Copperstone” or “the Company”) has been informed by the Swedish Government about the final decision to grant the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Copperstone Viscaria AB the exploitation concession Viscaria k no. 7.


In March 2018, the Mining Inspector awarded Copperstone Viscaria AB (then Avalon Minerals Viscaria AB) the exploitation concession, Viscaria k no. 7 (64 ha) in Kiruna municipality, Sweden. The decision was objected in due time. Copperstone has received a request for supplementary information from the Swedish Government, which have been filed back in due course. The Swedish Government has now informed the Company that it has decided to dismiss the appeal, and the Mining Inspector’s decision to award exploitation concession Viscaria k no. 7 is therefore the final decision.

The Company will now be able to include Viscaria k no. 7 in the Environmental Permit Application, land access requests as well as being an integral part of the mine lay-out together with exploitation concessions Viscaria k no. 3 and Viscaria k no. 4.

The exploitation concession Viscaria k no 7. will be valid for 25 years from the time of award by the Mining Inspector.

“Copperstone is delighted by the Government’s decision regarding this exploitation concession. Copperstone is on track to re-open the Viscaria copper mine, and together with Viscaria exploitation concessions no 3 and no 4, the Viscaria no 7 will now ultimately provide a longer life-of-mine, synergies through a better production economy as well as a potential for higher yearly copper production. Copperstone’s long term commitment in Norrbotten, Northern Sweden, is undisputable, being the employer of a growing team of industry specialists. At all times we consider our co-existence with the reindeer herding community, stake holders and the local environment as a whole”, comments CEO Anna Tyni.
