Beowulf Mining PLC shares tank as its most advanced Swedish project dealt a bitter blow

The county administrative board for Norrbotten in Sweden has not recommended to the government an exploitation licence for the Kallak North project.

Beowulf Mining plc saw shares tank nearly 39% in early London deals as its most advanced project was dealt a bitter blow.

The county administrative board for Norrbotten in Sweden has not recommended to the government an exploitation licence for the Kallak North project.

“Beowulf are reviewing the response in detail and will update the market as and when appropriate,” the firm said in a brief regulatory statement after market close on Thursday.

Kallak is a magnetite iron ore deposit

Shore Capital, in a note this morning, said: “Oh dear. The County Administrative Board for Norrbotten County has decided not to play ball.”
