With only a few weeks on the job as new CEO of Copperstone, I feel very inspired and excited about the prospects for the Group. As I have been responsible for establishing the operations in Kiruna since October last year, I know the organisation well and we now have a well-functioning and experienced team in place. Our mission is very clear: to reopen the Viscaria mine. This is a unique opportunity in many ways. Viscaria is a brown-field mine with a great location and extensive mineral reserves. The supply and demand situation for copper also looks favorable for the years to come. Moreover, as the use of new technology in this industry has progressed significantly the past few years, we have a chance to reopen Viscaria in a modern and sustainable way. We aim to become an important player and a project of reference in the transition to an electrified and more sustainable society.
For Copperstone, the year 2021 has started with a lot of internal energy. We have continued to add experts to our team in Kiruna and most recently we announced the recruitment of Marcello Imaña as new Chief Geologist and member of the management team. We have also strengthened our financial capabilities with approximately 260 MSEK through share issues, which enables us to continue to work with full speed in our preparation work and project planning for Viscaria. Right now, and throughout 2021, our key focus is the application work for an environmental permit that we intend to file at the end of the year. In late April, we announced a very important step in that process when we invited the public to consultation meetings, as part of the environmental permit process. We want to create an open and good dialogue with all parties and gather valuable knowledge and views - from Sami communities, as well as other organizations, the public and the authorities. Viscaria has the potential to create around 250 jobs and our goal is of course to coexist with the interests that are already present in the area. This is of great importance to us and a key success factor. The public dialogue will continue with several activities in the coming months.
Besides the application work, we will further update our mineral resources - a result of continued data analysis of previously completed drilling of the Viscaria A and B zones. During 2021, we will also continue our core drilling activities in Viscaria to gather further information for optimal set-up for the reopening of the mine from an economical and environmental perspective. We also plan to start drilling in the Arvidsjaur project to secure our assets in the area and further explore future potential. I look forward to developing Copperstone into a new kind of mining company, based in Kiruna, and to continue to recruit experts and talents to our team.
Anna Tyni, CEO Copperstone Resources

Bavarian Nordic leverer vacciner til Englands beredskab i forbindelse med nye tilfælde af abekopper11.6.2021 19:12:35 CEST | pressemeddelelse
KØBENHAVN, Danmark, 11. juni 2021 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) meddelte i dag, at selskabet for nylig er blevet anmodet af de engelske sundhedsmyndigheder, Public Health England (PHE) og Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), om at levere koppevaccinen IMVANEX® til vaccination i forbindelse med nye, udefrakommende tilfælde af abekopper i mennesker i England. To relaterede tilfælde er blevet bekræftet og er blevet indlagt på et hospital i Liverpool. Den ene er sandsynligvis blevet smittet i Afrika, hvorfra familien ankom et par dage inden sygdommen brød ud, mens den anden sandsynligvis er blevet smittet af det første tilfælde efter hjemkomsten. Abekopper er en sjælden, men alvorlig sygdom, der naturligt forekommer i det centrale og det vestlige Afrika. Sygdommen er beslægtet med den menneskelige koppesygdom, om end den er mindre alvorlig med en dødelighed, der er estimeret til at være fra 1-10% af tilfældene. IMVANEX (MVA-BN) er godkendt af Europa-Kommissionen til
Bavarian Nordic Assists Public Health England in Response to New Cases of Monkeypox11.6.2021 19:12:35 CEST | Press release
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, June 11, 2021 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) announced today that the Company was recently engaged by Public Health England (PHE) and the Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to supply its IMVANEX® smallpox vaccine in response to new cases of monkeypox in the UK. Two related cases were confirmed and admitted to a hospital in Liverpool. One was most likely infected in Africa, where the family arrived from a few days before onset of disease, and a sibling case most likely infected on UK soil by the first case. Monkeypox is a rare, but serious disease, which is endemic in Central and West Africa. The disease is quite similar to human smallpox, although it is less severe with an estimated fatality rate of 1-10%. IMVANEX (MVA-BN) is approved by the European Commission for active immunization against smallpox but has also received approval for monkeypox by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada, as the only vaccine approved for
