Sweden: Beowulf Mining seeks to mine in indigenous Sámi territory despite government refusal of its application, incl. co. AGM responses
Beowulf is a small mining company, listed on the London Stock Exchange. For years it has been attempting to construct an iron ore mine in the region of Jokkmokk in northern Sweden, where indigeneous Sámi people herd reindeer, and against the opposition of many in the Sami community. In February 2020, the Swedish government announced that they had finally refused the company’s application for their Kallak mining project.
However, the company has continued to express interest in mining in the area. London Mining Network decided to ask the company questions dedicated to this topic ahead of its 2020 Annual General Meeting.
This story includes London Mining Network's questions and Beowulf Mining's answers.
