The Administrative Court of Appeal of Sundsvall has in a February 14,
2008, ruling, confirmed the previous decision by the Mining
Inspectorate to grant a number of exploration permits. This overrules
the previous decision by the County Administrative Court after
appeals from the Vapsten Sameby and a local land owner.

The County Court's decision concerning 19 exploration permits, which
has been granted for seven different companies within the area of
Vapsten's sameby, is thereby cancelled. Lappland Goldminers AB holds
10 of these permits.

- The decision by the County Court, to cancel the exploration permits
which were granted by the Mining Inspectorate, has been troublesome
for us as an exploration company, as well as for the other companies
concerned and the industra as a whole. With the ruling by the
Administrative Court of Appeal we are back to a normal situation,
where we can expect to be granted permission to explore, within the
restrictions mandated by the Mineral Law and Environmental
Regulations. As our company is the one affected by most of the
permits and the largest area, we have been the ones coordinating this
matter with assistancve from the other companies. It is a great
relief to now have removed a major source of worry for the entire
Swedish Mining Industry, says Lappland Goldminer CEO, Karl-Åke
