General information about the Company

Bluelake Mineral AB (pull) is an independent Swedish company active in exploration and mine development of copper, zinc, nickel and gold resources.

The Company owns approximately 99% of the subsidiary Vilhelmina Mineral AB, which is focusing on development of copper and zinc deposits in the Nordic region. In Sweden, the Company owns Stekenjokk-Levi project, where a total of approximately 7 million tonnes of ore were mined between 1976 and 1988 with an average grade 1.5% Cu and 3.5% Zn. Stekenjokk-Levi is, according to a recent Mineral Resource Estimate by SRK Consulting, containing inferred mineral resources of approximately 6.7 million tonnes with 0.9 % Cu, 2.7 % Zn, 0.6 % Pb, 55 Ag g/t and 0.2 g/t Au for Stekenjokk and inferred mineral resources of 5.1 million tonnes with 1.0 % Cu, 1.5 % Zn, 0.1 % Pb, 22 Ag g/t and 0.2 g/t Au for Levi (at a NSR cut-off of 60 USD/t). In Norway, the Company is owner in the Joma field, where approximately 11.5 million tonnes of ore were processed between 1972 and 1998 with an average grade of 1.5% Cu and 1.5% Zn. The Joma field (excluding Gjersvik) is, according to a recent mineral estimate by SRK Consulting, containing indicated mineral resources of approximately 6 million tonnes with grades amounting to 1.00 % Cu and 1.66 % Zn and inferred resources of 1.2 million tonnes with grades 1.2 % Cu and 0.7 % Zn (at cut-off of 50 USD/t).

In addition, the Company owns the nickel projects Rönnbäcken (which is Europe's largest known undeveloped nickel resource) and Orrbäcken in Sweden. According to a recently updated mineral resource update by the mining consulting company SRK, the Rönnbäcken project contains a mineral resource of 600 million tonnes with an average grade of 0.18% Ni, 0.003% Co and 5.7% Fe ("measured and indicated"). The updated preliminary economic assessment that SRK completed predicts a production of 23,000 tonnes of nickel, 660 tonnes of cobalt and 1.5 million tonnes of iron per year for 20 years, which would be a significant proportion of Sweden's total annual use of nickel which thereby has a strategic value. Orrbäcken is an exploration license that is considered to have potential as a nickel deposit.

The Company owns the gold project Haveri, through its subsidiary Palmex Mining Oy, which in 2014 carried out a so-called Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) prepared by SRK Consulting. This report estimates 1.56 million oz. historically inferred mineral resource of gold equivalents with a grade of 0.93 g/t gold.) Kattisavan is mainly considered to have potential as a gold resource and is located within the so-called gold line, close to projects such as Svartliden, Fäboliden and Barsele.

Bluelake Mineral AB (publ) ("Bluelake Mineral" or the "Company") has, as previously announced in the spring of 2021, initiated a review of strategic alternatives for its subsidiary Nickel Mountain AB ("Nickel Mountain"), which owns the Swedish nickel and the cobalt project in Storuman municipality, Västerbotten county (the "Rönnbäcken Project" or "Rönnbäcken") to maximize its future potential. Rönnbäcken is one of the largest, unexploited nickel deposits in Europe with the potential to be a strategic resource for both the European battery and steel industry. In a first step, as announced on 23 February 2022, a preliminary economic assessment ("Preliminary Economic Assessment" or "PEA") was carried out by the consulting company SRK Consulting ("SRK") which shows significant financial and strategic values in the Rönnbäcken Project and which supports further financing of the application for an environmental permit. As a basis for the application for a permit, a preliminary study ("Preliminary Feasibility Study" or "PFS") and an environmental impact assessment ("EIA") has to be carried out. According to a preliminary estimate, funding of approximately SEK 100 million is required for these studies. The Company believes that this financing can arranged directly in the subsidiary Nickel Mountain without issuing of new shares in Bluelake Mineral.
