Initial planning is based on the completion of 4,000m / 8 holes of infill and step-out drilling on the high-grade Hessjøgruva Lens A deposit, which was partially tested as part of the 12,035m / 67 holes of historical diamond drilling completed at Hessjøgruva in the 1970´s (see Canadian National Instrument 43-101 or "NI 43-101" compliant technical report filed on SEDAR on September 7, 2022; www.sedar.com).

Euromines represents an important interface between a broad spectrum of mining companies - from explorers/developers to major mining companies such as Anglo American and Rio Tinto - with both EU policy and communities. At our Hessjøgruva project in central Norway, we are looking forward to be able to continue moving the project along the path towards a maiden NI 43-101-compliant Mineral Resource Estimate and initial development-related studies and permitting."
