The Kallak iron ore deposit is located about 40km west of the Jokkmokk municipality centre in the Norrbotten County in Northern Sweden. The licence covers an area of 500 hectares of forested, low hilly ground close to the main paved road between Kvikkjokk (Ruoutevare) and Jokkmokk. A high standard forest road passes across the deposit and a major hydroelectric powerstation with associated electric powerlines is located only a few kilometres away.
The Kallak iron ore was discovered by the SGU in 1947-
The iron ores are outcropping and consist of relatively massive magnetite and minor
hematite, interlayered with quartz, feldspar and some hornblende. The dominant host
rock is a grey volcanite. The ores occur in a north-
The iron ores are more than 300 metres wide and confirmed extension for the northern deposit is more than one kilometre.
Geophysical calculations by the SGU have estimated a tonnage for the northern deposit
of 92 million tonnes and 29 million tonnes for the southern deposit. The ores have
average grades varying between 35-
Results from qualitative metallurgical testing on Kallak ore material commissioned from MINPRO during the reporting period are anticipated to be available in April.
In addition, a conceptual study on Kallak commissioned from RMG has recently been received and the report is available here >
In April 2010 Beowulf will started it's own diamond drilling campaign in Kallak.
Some 3,760 metres of drilling in over 32 holes was completed and is now being analysed.
We have completed some initial Davis Tube tests on Kallak North and the results are shown here >
Further tests will take place

In September 2010 Beowulf acquired the company Iron of Sweden which became a 100% subsidiary.
Iron of Sweden has a number of Licences the key ones for Beowulf are Parkijaure 1 and 2 which are just south of our existing property Kallak North.
From now on the Parkijaure Licences will be known as Kallak South
With the acquisition of the Iron of Sweden Licences we have considerably extended the area that was covered in the Raw Materials Group study.
