COPPERSTONE RESOURCES AB: UPDATE ON PERMITS

Copperstone has been informed that an appeal against Sandberget 500 exploration permit has been filed at the Mining Inspectorate on March 1, 2019. If the appeal is considered legitimate, the case will be handed over to the Administrative Court (Sw: Förvaltningsdomstolen) which will decide on the appeal. All permits regarding the Copperstone project are valid up and until 2022.

In the meantime, the Company will continue to invest responsibly and sustainably for prosperity in Arvidsjaur municipality and expected within soon, Kiruna municipality. The application for work permits, including dispensation for driving in the terrain and core drill permits, will as always be conducted through the County Administration Board in accordance with existing laws and regulations.

For the sake of clarity, the Sandberget 500 exploration permit is valid, and an extract regarding Permits and Concessions from the Q4-report, released February 21, 2019, is attached below. The Company cannot recall any occasion when an exploration permit awarded by the Mining Inspectorate has been cancelled due to an appeal, and will follow the case closely.
