IQALUIT, NU, Aug. 4, 2021 /CNW/ – The Government of Canada supports infrastructure projects that create quality, middle-class jobs and boost economic growth. Enhancing infrastructure supports and promotes economic growth and social development, offers job opportunities, provides greater connectivity for Northerners, increases the resilience of the Arctic and North to a changing climate, and ensures it can adapt to innovative technologies.

Today, the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities of Canada, the Honourable Catherine McKenna, on behalf of Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced a major investment of more than $40 million for a project focused on developing port infrastructure that will improve the efficiency of Nunavut’s off-shore fishing industry.

The project involves the construction of a new deep-water port in Qikiqtarjuaq, located on the main route of the Northwest Passage, which would support the Davis Strait and Baffin Bay regions. This port would provide a new option for offloading fishing vessels in Nunavut. Looking ahead, the port would also service local resupply goods and could further benefit other users, such as tourism vessels.

Minister McKenna also announced funding for two other projects in the region, under the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada plan.

The Government of Canada is investing $225,000 in the Rankin Inlet Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades Planning Project, which involves planning studies to improve Rankin Inlet’s wastewater treatment plant. Once completed, the project will increase the hamlet’s ability to treat and manage wastewater.

The Government of Canada is also investing $1.8 million in the Water Treatment Plants Planning Project in Arctic Bay, Grise Fiord, Pond Inlet, Rankin Inlet and Sanikiluaq. This will support the planning phase for the design and construction of water treatment plants in the communities. Thanks to this project, the hamlets will provide reliable and continuous potable water services to residents.

These projects will safeguard public health, protect the environment, and build healthy sustainable communities for generations to come.

On behalf the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, Minister McKenna provided an update on plans for two new Small Craft Harbours in Nunavut Territory at Clyde River and Arctic Bay.

These investments are expected to have important economic, environmental and employment benefits for the region.

FREYR Battery Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

NEW YORK, OSLO, Norway & LUXEMBOURG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FREYR Battery (NYSE: FREY) (“FREYR”), a developer of clean, next-generation battery cell production capacity, today reported financial results of FREYR AS for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. FREYR listed on the New York Stock Exchange

NEW YORK, OSLO, Norway & LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FREYR Battery (NYSE: FREY) (“FREYR”), a developer of clean, next-generation battery cell production capacity, today reported financial results of FREYR AS for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. FREYR listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) following the completion of the Business Combination between Alussa Energy Acquisition Corp. (“Alussa”) and FREYR AS on July 9, 2021 (the “Business Combination”).

Highlights of the second quarter 2021 and subsequent events:

  • Completed the Business Combination and NYSE listing, raising $704 million in gross proceeds as equity financing for the development of low-cost, low-carbon battery cell manufacturing capacity
  • FREYR continues to progress towards the development of up to 43 Gigawatt hours (“GWh”) of battery cell production capacity by 2025 with an ambition of up to 83 GWh in total capacity by 2028
  • Made the Final Investment Decision (“FID”) for the Customer qualification plant (“CQP”), which is scheduled to commence operations from the second half of 2022
  • Announced ongoing negotiations to potentially build battery production facilities in North America
  • Announced two non-binding memoranda of understanding (“MoU”) with Finnish Minerals Group and the City of Vaasa, respectively, targeting potential strategic collaborations and industrial scaling of clean battery cell technology in Finland
  • FREYR AS second-quarter net loss of $8.0 million, or ($0.04) per fully diluted share, reflects the costs of organizational expansion and preparations to start construction of the CQP
  • The combined balance sheet of FREYR and Alussa, presented as if the Business Combination had been completed as of June 30, 2021, had cash and cash equivalents of $652 million.

“FREYR is focused on executing our plan to develop clean, cost-efficient battery cell production capacity at scale by 2025, which we expect will position FREYR as one of Europe’s largest battery cell suppliers. Our near-term priorities are to build our commercial portfolio, establish our operations in accordance with key milestones, and fund our continued expansion,” said Tom Jensen, the CEO of FREYR. “The NYSE listing is a critical milestone that supports FREYR’s long-term ambition to decarbonize transport and energy systems by delivering sustainable and cost-effective batteries to energy storage systems (ESS), electric vehicles and other applications, thereby generating returns for our shareholders and stakeholders.”

Business Update

  • The ESS market represents a rapidly growing opportunity for FREYR. In May 2021, Rystad Energy forecasted that approximately 1,800 GWh of battery capacity or flexible energy sources will be required to back up solar and wind power in the U.S. by 2030 based on the Biden administration’s announced decarbonization goals. In May 2021, FREYR announced that it entered into an MoU with ESS manufacturer Eguana Technologies Inc. for the potential offtake of high-density and cost-competitive battery cells over five years. Under the agreement, FREYR will also engage Eguana in designing and producing cost-optimized, standardized battery modules.
  • In June 2021, FREYR disclosed ongoing negotiations with a major multinational industrial conglomerate on a draft non-binding MoU for a potential joint venture in North America. The draft MoU provides a framework for FREYR and a subsidiary of a major multinational industrial conglomerate to build production facilities in North America using U.S.-developed solutions from 24M at a targeted scale of at least 50 GWh of annual battery cell capacity by 2030. The use of 24M process technology in the potential joint venture would require a modification to FREYR’s existing 24M license agreement.
  • In June 2021, and in line with its strategy of developing local battery supply chains to access materials made responsibly with renewable energy, FREYR signed a non-binding MoU with Talga Group Ltd. (“Talga”) for the supply of active anode materials based on natural graphite produced in Sweden. The parties intend to discuss binding long-term supply agreements as well as other business models and collaborations.
  • In July 2021, FREYR announced that it had reached FID to proceed with the construction of the CQP and first battery cell production line in Mo i Rana, Norway. Preparatory work on the facility is ongoing with a targeted start of initial operations in the second half of 2022. The CQP is expected to enable 24M technology implementation, testing of materials and battery cells, training of staff, and the supply of samples to potential customers across targeted market segments. The CQP investment will be higher than initially forecasted, reflecting both higher equipment and materials costs as well as production line design enhancements, based on feedback from potential customers, to increase flexibility. After making the FID, FREYR signed contracts for the supply of long lead items for the construction of the plant.
  • In July 2021, FREYR signed a contract with Mpac Lambert for the supply of the casting and unit cell assembly equipment package to the battery cell production line at FREYR’s CQP in Mo i Rana, Norway.
  • Earlier today, FREYR announced two non-binding memoranda of understanding (“MoU”) with Finnish Minerals Group for strategic collaboration on industrial scale battery cell production, and with the City of Vaasa for sustainable battery cell production in Finland, respectively. Finnish Minerals Group acts as a holding company in the Finnish mining and chemical industry providing low-carbon materials to the battery industry and is supportive of establishing local Nordic and European battery technology supply chains. The MoU with the City of Vaasa provides FREYR with the exclusive right to a 90-hectare (900,000 square meters) site for a potential battery cell plant and states that the parties will explore opportunities for joint site-development to accelerate supply of low-carbon and low-cost batteries in Finland subject to certain conditions being met.
  • FREYR is engaged in customer dialogues for offtake of clean, low-cost battery cells from the planned production facilities in Norway. The discussions represent an aggregate volume potential significantly above the up to 43 GWh of targeted battery cell production capacity by 2025 for applications across the energy storage system (ESS), electric vehicle and marine transportation segments.

Results Overview

  • FREYR AS reported a Net Loss for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 of $(8.0) million or $(0.04) per share compared to FREYR AS’s Net Loss of $(1.0) million or $(0.01) per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.
  • FREYR AS reported a total operating loss for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 of $(10.2) million compared to FREYR AS’s total operating loss of $(1.0) million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Financing and Liquidity

  • The Business Combination was completed on July 9, 2021. The transaction provided $704 million of gross proceeds to FREYR, net of redemptions by Alussa Energy shareholders, and including a $600 million Private Investment in Public Equity (“PIPE”) at $10.00 per share.
  • As of June 30, 2021, FREYR AS had cash and cash equivalents of $11.2 million. The combined balance sheet of FREYR and Alussa, presented as if the Business Combination had been completed as of June 30, 2021, had cash and cash equivalents of $652 million.

Business Outlook

FREYR looks forward to achieving the following milestones over the next 18 months:

  • Progress development of the CQP with a targeted start of operations in the second half of 2022
  • Complete CQP equipment tenders and advance tendering for the subsequent Gigafactories

Construction Market in Sweden – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Construction in Sweden - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (H1 2021)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The Swedish construction industry fared better than its Nordic neighbours in 2020, due to the moderate Coronavirus (COVID- 19) containme

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Construction in Sweden – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (H1 2021)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Swedish construction industry fared better than its Nordic neighbours in 2020, due to the moderate Coronavirus (COVID- 19) containment measures, which ensured construction was not greatly disrupted last year, and grew by 1% in real terms in 2020. Growth was supported by public and private sector investments in both building and civil engineering works, with positive developments in the residential and infrastructure sectors. Moreover, this compares favorably with the industry’s performance in 2019, when it contracted by 0.9%.

Owing to the uncertain situation, however, the industry is expected to remain weak in 2021, registering a marginal growth of 1%. Reflecting this fact, the industry has faced a difficult start to the year, with output contracting by 3.4% in Q1 2021 on a year-on-year (Y-o-Y) basis (the latest data available at the time of writing), compared to a Y-o-Y decline of 2% in Q4 2020. The industry was weakened by restrictions put in place by the government in the winter to combat the third wave of infections.

The industry to regain momentum and register an average annual growth of 2.1% is over the period of 2022-2025. This growth would be supported by public and private sector investment in the country’s transport infrastructure, coupled with efforts to boost energy production.

In September 2020, the Swedish government presented the 2021 budget bill to the Riksdag, which plans to inject SEK105 billion (US$11 billion) into the economy in 2021. In addition, SEK9.7 billion (US$1 billion) is included in the bill, which is aimed at fighting climate change. Moreover, the government proposed SEK105 billion (US$12.5 billion) and SEK85 billion (US$10.1 billion) of a stimulus package for 2021 and 2022, respectively.

This report provides detailed market analysis, information, and insights into the Swedish construction industry, including:

  • The Swedish construction industry’s growth prospects by market, project type and construction activity
  • Critical insight into the impact of industry trends and issues, as well as an analysis of key risks and opportunities in the Swedish construction industry
  • Analysis of the mega-project pipeline, focusing on development stages and participants, in addition to listings of major projects in the pipeline.

Scope

  • Historical (2016-2020) and forecast (2021-2025) valuations of the construction industry in Sweden, featuring details of key growth drivers.
  • Segmentation by sector (commercial, industrial, infrastructure, energy and utilities, institutional and residential) and by sub-sector
  • Analysis of the mega-project pipeline, including breakdowns by development stage across all sectors, and projected spending on projects in the existing pipeline.

Nunavut communities tackle climate change using Indigenous knowledge and science

NUNAVUT, June 29, 2021 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada is working together with Indigenous and Northern partners to find solutions to the impacts of climate change in the North. Today, Minister of Northern Affairs Daniel Vandal highlighted progress on three unique, Indigenous-led projects that are helping communities in Nunavut adapt to the challenges posed...

NUNAVUT, June 29, 2021 /CNW/ – The Government of Canada is working together with Indigenous and Northern partners to find solutions to the impacts of climate change in the North.

Today, Minister of Northern Affairs Daniel Vandal highlighted progress on three unique, Indigenous-led projects that are helping communities in Nunavut adapt to the challenges posed by climate change.

The Minister met virtually with the mayor of the Hamlet of Arviat to learn about their Community Drainage Plan project. The Hamlet has been experiencing the effects of climate change, including permafrost degradation and more severe weather events that have caused the flooding of community streets and residents’ property. With funding from Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, the Hamlet developed the Community Drainage Plan, which will guide its response to drainage issues to help prevent road damage from flood events and mitigate some of the effects experienced as a result of climate change.

In the Kivalliq region, the Kivalliq Wildlife Board is using science along with Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit—or Inuit Traditional Knowledge—through a terrestrial and marine community-based monitoring project that studies the connection between climate, vegetation and caribou, as well as water conditions and the marine food chain. The project addresses community concerns across the entire Kivalliq region regarding access to country food by developing local monitoring capacity to track the impacts of climate change. The monitoring activities are conducted by local youth with the guidance of hunters, women and Elders, who promote intergenerational knowledge exchange and culture-based capacity building rooted within their own culture.

Many communities in the North continue to rely on diesel or other emissions-intensive sources of energy, which not only contribute to climate change but are also costly and polluting. In the Hamlet of Baker Lake, the community is installing a 130 kilowatt solar energy system on its recreation centre, which will reduce reliance on imported diesel by an estimated 32,000 litres per year. The project will also create local employment opportunities, generate revenue for the community and provide renewable energy training to community members.

These projects are delivering important environmental, social and economic benefits that lead to healthier, more sustainable and resilient communities across Nunavut. They also build community clean energy capacity and help reduce the impacts of climate change.

Quotes

“These three unique projects are bringing environmental, social and economic benefits to Nunavut. By empowering communities in their decision-making and supporting their vision for a green future, people working at the local level are finding solutions to tackle the effects of climate change. The end result will be healthier, more sustainable and resilient communities in the North.”

The Honourable Daniel Vandal, P.C., M.P.
Minister of Northern Affairs

“For years, we have seen the changes that are happening in the natural world, not just in terms of increased flooding, but also the changing weather patterns and disruptions to wildlife such as polar bears, caribou and beluga whales. That’s why the Arviat Council has identified climate change and climate change adaptation as a priority for the Hamlet and the community. We thank CIRNAC and the Climate Change Preparedness in the North Program for their support in this initiative.”

Joe Savikataaq Jr., Mayor of Arviat

“In addition to better managing drainage, this project addresses another community priority of maintaining the quality and safety of public roads. This drainage plan, completed by Dillon Consulting in close consultation with the Hamlet of Arviat, is a solid start to addressing the infrastructure, knowledge and training requirements the Hamlet needs to effectively manage this issue in the coming years.”

Steve England, Senior Administrative Officer for Arviat

Quick facts

  • Through the Climate Change Preparedness in the North program, the Hamlet of Arviat received $150,000 for its Community Drainage Plan project.
  • The Kivalliq Wildlife Board received $459,615 through the Indigenous Community-Based Climate Monitoring Program for its Climate, Wildlife and People: Terrestrial and Marine Monitoring Promoting Adaptation and Food Security in Kangigliniq project.
  • Through the Northern REACHE program, the Hamlet of Baker Lake received $172,930 for its 130 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system as part of Baker Lake’s Recreation Centre project.
  • Canada’s North is warming at three times the global rate, with significant impacts on shoreline erosion, wildfire risk and permafrost stability. Indigenous Peoples are experiencing its impact on their way of life, which is closely tied to the land and waters. Many communities in the North continue to rely on diesel or other emissions-intensive sources of energy, which not only contribute to climate change but are also costly and polluting.
  • As part of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada has invested $134 million in more than 670 unique projects in Northern communities for initiatives that monitor and assess climate change impacts, improve green energy infrastructure, and engage Indigenous communities on climate policy.
  • Building on these investments, Budget 2021 proposes $40.4 million over three years, starting in 2021–22, to support the feasibility and planning of hydroelectricity and grid interconnection projects in the North to help communities transition to clean energy and reduce their reliance on diesel and other emissions-intensive sources of energy.

Norwegian Energy Company ASA Announces Trading and Operations Update in connection with Request for Dialogue with Bondholders

OSLO, Norway, June 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Norwegian Energy Company ASA ("Noreco" or the "Company") has today announced a trading and operations update to the market for the two months ending 31 May 2021. A Capital Markets Update is attached and will be made available on the Company's website, www.noreco.com. In addition, the Company will seek...

OSLO, Norway, June 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Norwegian Energy Company ASA (“Noreco” or the “Company”) has today announced a trading and operations update to the market for the two months ending 31 May 2021. A Capital Markets Update is attached and will be made available on the Company’s website, www.noreco.com. In addition, the Company will seek to engage in bondholder discussions regarding the addition of further covenant headroom under its NOR14 Senior Unsecured Bond agreement.

The Company’s second quarter financial statements will, as planned, be released to the market on 13 July 2021. The Company has not completed its second quarter 2021 financial reporting. The estimates provided in this release are therefore subject to change and the second quarter financials may deviate from the information provided herein.

Financial 

  • Strong liquidity position of USD 272 million at 31 May 2021, consisting of undrawn RBL capacity of USD 178 million based on the Company’s current Borrowing Base and cash on balance sheet of USD 94 million
  • Successful closing of new USD 1.1 billion RBL facility with existing and new lenders.  This new facility, which has a seven-year term and amortizations from the second half of 2024, replaced the Company’s prior USD 900 million facility. This provides additional liquidity while also loosening the pre-Tyra leverage covenant and is a strong testimony to Noreco’s underlying assets and business. The semi-annual redetermination of the RBL Borrowing Base is currently ongoing and is expected to be announced end of June 2021, with the Company anticipating the facility’s cash drawing capacity to remain above USD 1 billion
  • Due to favorable gas market conditions and to further safeguard pre-Tyra cash flow, during Q2 2021 to date the Company entered into additional price hedging agreements of 1.2mm MWh at EUR 29/MWh for Winter 2021 / 2022

The information provided above includes certain alternative performance measures (“APMs”).  These APMs are consistent with those used in the Company’s annual and quarterly financial statements and reference is made to the Company’s first quarter 2021 financial statements.

Operational 

  • Net production of approximately 27.3 mboepd during the first two months of the second quarter, in the upper range of the Company’s annual guidance of 25.5 – 27.5 mboepd
  • Operational efficiency of 83.5 percent during second quarter
  • The Noble Sam Turner rig program for planned well workovers and well maintenance continues to have a positive impact on operating performance Tyra Redevelopment 
  • High activity levels ongoing during 2021 are progressing the project significantly towards first gas
  • Fabrication of the two wellhead and riser platforms (WHRP) and the processing and accommodation modules takes place on three yards
    • Sembcorp Marine (Singapore): WHRP for Tyra East and Tyra West. Fabrication of the Tyra East WHRP is close to complete and the transport vessel arrived at the yard 20 June. The Tyra West WHRP is progressing towards sail away and installation during 2022. The temporary shutdown of the yard in May this year due to COVID-19 only had a limited impact on the Tyra project. As such the current progress at Sembcorp is not expected to create a risk to the first gas date
    • McDermott (Batam, Indonesia): Processing module. Due to high frequency of COVID-19 cases in the area, enhanced precautionary measures have been implemented to minimize exposure and new cases. As a result, parts of the fabrication of the process module have progressed slower than expected. However, built-in contingency still allows the process module to sail away during 2022
    • Rosetti Marine (Ravenna, Italy): Accommodation module. Due to COVID-19 impacts, fabrication is progressing slower than originally planned. Several strategic alternatives related to sail-away timing are currently being assessed, with no scenarios under current estimates that are expected to create a risk to first gas date
  • Tyra budget: The official budget of gross DKK 21 billion has not been revised since FID in 2017. However, and mainly driven by COVID-19, the Company is seeing upward pressure on costs. While the Danish Underground Consortium partnership (the “DUC”) has not yet revised the official Tyra budget, Noreco as a non-operated partner internally assumes an estimated project cost of DKK 22 billion based on the Company’s independent assessment of information provided by the operator
  • While the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a challenge, including at fabrication yards, Noreco expects the ongoing proactive mitigation and preparedness strategies being exercised will safeguard the Tyra first gas date in Q2 2023 NOR14 Covenant Headroom Noreco has significantly strengthened its capital structure during 2021 through the refinancing of its RBL facility, providing additional liquidity and deferring amortization payments into the second half of 2024.    Using current forecasts, the Company does not expect to breach NOR14’s maximum leverage ratio during the Tyra Redevelopment period based on forward curve pricing assumptions.  However, Noreco would like to add additional headroom under this financial covenant to reduce exposure to future market volatility and further secure delivery of Tyra. The Company believes refocusing the covenants on liquidity enhances the NOR14 bondholders’ position as this measure more closely corresponds to the core of Noreco’s underlying credit story in the period prior to Tyra recommencing production.  It will also better reflect the revised RBL facility, where the pre-Tyra leverage covenant was relaxed with no impact on margin.  Additionally, Noreco intends to address the leverage covenant impact of the shift in Tyra first gas to Q2 2023 that was announced in November 2020.    The Company is seeking to engage in a dialogue with bondholders and has appointed Arctic Securities and Pareto Securities to assist with this process.   ***   Contact:  Euan Shirlaw, Chief Financial Officer Phone: +44 7979 690622 Email: [email protected]  Cathrine Torgersen, EVP Investor Relations & Communications Phone: +47 91 52 85 01 Email: [email protected]

Norden Crown Completes Phase I Airborne Magnetic Geophysics at the Burfjord Copper-Gold Project, Norway

VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 1, 2021 /CNW/ -  Norden Crown Metals Corp. ("Norden Crown" or the "Company") (TSXV: NOCR) (OTC: NOCRF) (Frankfurt: 03E) is pleased to announce that it has completed ~ 400 line kilometers (Phase I) of a 2-Phase UAV airborne magnetic geophysical program at the 100% owned Burfjord Copper Project ("Burfjord" or the "Project") in...

Norden Crown Metals Corp. (CNW Group/Norden Crown Metals Corp.)

VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 1, 2021 /CNW/ –  Norden Crown Metals Corp. (“Norden Crown” or the “Company“) (TSXV: NOCR) (OTC: NOCRF) (Frankfurt: 03E) is pleased to announce that it has completed ~ 400 line kilometers (Phase I) of a 2-Phase UAV airborne magnetic geophysical program at the 100% owned Burfjord Copper Project (“Burfjord” or the “Project“) in northern Norway.  Norden Crown, in partnership with Boliden Mineral AB (“Boliden“), is actively drill testing a variety of geological, geochemical, and geophysical target anomalies on the property and the results from this tightly spaced survey (see below) are expected to help identify new exploration targets on the property and enhance and prioritize existing drill targets (Figure 1).  Phase II of the survey is expected to commence in the coming weeks.  Previous drilling by Norden Crown (see March 20, 2019 News Release) at Burfjord returned compelling results including an intercept of 32 metres averaging 0.56% copper and 0.26 g/t gold (including 3.46 metres of 4.31% copper and 2.22 g/t gold) at shallow depths below a cluster of historic mine workings1,2. Historical drilling on the Project (Cedarsgruvan) was reported to have returned 7.0 metres averaging 3.6% copper3.

Patricio Varas, Chairman and CEO of Norden Crown stated, “High resolution magnetic geophysics is proving to be an excellent mapping and targeting tool at Burfjord given the high magnetic contrast of the copper host rocks.  The Company intends to fully integrate these data with our existing lithological, structural, geophysical and geochemical 3D modeling to enhance existing targets and identify new ones.” 

Figure 1. Location of Phase I UAV Magnetic Survey, high priority target areas and 2021 planned drilling at the Burfjord Project, Norway. (CNW Group/Norden Crown Metals Corp.)

UAV AIRBORNE MAGNETIC GEOOPHYSICS

The Burfjord UAV Magnetic Survey covers approximately 857 line kilometers and will be collected by GRM Geophysical Rock and Mechanical Services Inc. (Finland).  The survey will be flown along lines spaced at 100 meters with tie lines at 1000 meters spacing. The survey is broken down into two phases including a Phase I portion covering the northern half of the project area (~400 line kilomters) and a Phase II component (600 line kilomters) covering the southern portion of the property (Figure 1).  Survey will be flown with a UAV Quadcopter carrying a GEM-GSMP35 potassium magnetometer (30 meter sensor height).  A GEMGSM19 Overhauser magnetometer will be used as a base station.

Burfjord Joint Venture Terms

Norden Crown entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement”) with Boliden in respect to Burfjord (see June 10, 2020 News Release). In order to earn its 51% interest in the Project, Boliden must fund 100% of the exploration programs by spending US$6 Million over the next four years.

Overview of the Burfjord Project

The Project, located in the Kåfjord Copper Belt near Alta, Norway is highly prospective for Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) and Sediment Hosted Copper mineral deposits.  High-grade copper-gold veins at Burfjord that were historically mined (pre 20th century) at reported cutoff grades of 3-5% Cu are surrounded by envelopes of stockwork veins or disseminations of copper mineralization extending tens to hundreds of metres laterally into the host rocks.  Norden Crown and Boliden believe this mineralization has economic potential and represents an attractive bulk tonnage exploration drilling target.

Copper bearing veins in the area  are dominated by ferroan carbonate, sodium-rich minerals, and iron-oxide minerals (magnetite and hematite), but also contain the economically important minerals chalcopyrite, bornite and chalcocite in addition to cobalt-rich pyrite as generally coarse grained (often 0.5 centimetre to multi-centimetre scale) disseminations in the veins.

Burfjord is comprised of six exploration licenses totaling 5,500 hectares in the Kåfjord Copper Belt near Alta in Norway. During the nineteenth century, copper mineralization was mined from over 30 historic mines and prospects developed along the flanks of a prominent 4 x 6-kilometre fold (anticline) consisting of interbedded sedimentary and volcanic rocks.  Many of the rocks in the anticline are intensely hydrothermally altered and contain sulphide mineralization.

About Norden Crown

Norden Crown is a mineral exploration company focused on the discovery of silver, zinc, copper, and gold deposits in exceptional, historical mining project areas spanning Sweden and Norway.  The Company aims to discover new economic mineral deposits in historical mining districts that have seen little or no modern exploration techniques.  The Company is led by an experienced management team and an accomplished technical team, with successful track records in mineral discovery, mining development and financing.

FAIRBANKS, Alaska, Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The 2021-22 Fairbanks Winter Guide is now available for free. The 24-page full-color booklet is designed to help plan vacations to Fairbanks during the Winter Season. Take a trip to Fairbanks and knock northern lights viewing off your bucket list, watch two-ton blocks of ice be turned into works of art and mush a team of huskies across the wilderness. Filled with winter businesses including accommodations, attractions, adventures, tours and action-packed things to do, the guide presents an enticing view of winter in Alaska’s Interior and Arctic.

The Winter Guide explains why Fairbanks is the place to go for aurora viewing and gives pro tips on how to chase the northern lights. Fairbanks has outstanding aurora viewing because it is directly under the “Auroral Oval,” a ring-shaped zone over the far north where aurora activity is concentrated. Additionally, Fairbanks’ low precipitation, meager light pollution and distance from coastal areas all contribute to consistently clear, dark nights which are ideal for aurora chasing. For chances of seeing the northern lights check out the Aurora Tracker on the Explore Fairbanks website. Utilizing data from the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Geophysical Institute, the Aurora Tracker offers real-time and three-day forecasts based on current aurora activity, weather and amount of daylight for multiple locations in and around Fairbanks.

Fairbanks also enjoys an array of winter fun. Listed in the guide are winter activities and events including skiing, ice skating, ice sculpting, ice fishing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, dog mushing, fat tire biking, hiking, curling and ice hockey. Indoor attractions include several museums, art galleries, shops with made-in-Alaska items, multiple aurora viewing locations, a visitors center and more. Listings also include appetizing cafes, breweries and distilleries offering local epicurean delights.

In addition to partaking in all the spectacular things to do in and around Fairbanks, travelers can also visit Santa in North Pole, discover the sheer beauty of Denali National Park and Preserve during winter months, journey above the Arctic Circle, or delight in the warmth of an Alaskan hot springs at the end of an adventure-filled day.

Kloosterboer International Forwarding and Alaska Reefer Management File Motion for Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction against U.S. Customs and Border Protection

ANCHORAGE, Ala., Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kloosterboer International Forwarding LCC (KIF) and Alaska Reefer Management LLC (ARM) today filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in U.S. District Court in Anchorage, Alaska, to stop a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforcement action that threatens the ability to supply Alaska seafood to...

ANCHORAGE, Ala., Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Kloosterboer International Forwarding LCC (KIF) and Alaska Reefer Management LLC (ARM) today filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in U.S. District Court in Anchorage, Alaska, to stop a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforcement action that threatens the ability to supply Alaska seafood to U.S. customers and consumers.

Without warning or explanation, CBP recently issued Notices of Penalty to companies that harvest, process, store and transport Alaska seafood products to the Eastern U.S. via the port of Bayside, New Brunswick, alleging violations of the Jones Act. This was a shock to the industry because the route targeted by CBP has been in place for approximately 20 years and relies on a long-established statutory exception to general Jones Act requirements. The route has also been the subject of multiple CBP rulings and court decisions that confirm its legality.

“We are reeling from crippling penalties, Customs has not been forthcoming to share specifics, and Customs’ long-standing guidance tells us we are operating in compliance,” said Per Brautaset, President of ARM. “We just didn’t have a choice but to try and save our business and our partners’ businesses, and all the jobs in Alaska and other communities that will be lost.”

Until two weeks ago, the industry had received no hint that CBP was reconsidering its longstanding approval of the route and preparing notices of penalties amounting to over $350 million dollars. Nothing in the Notices of Penalty provides any specificity about the alleged conduct that constitutes a Jones Act violation, or any rationale for CBP’s apparent reversal of its longstanding ruling.

“We are grateful for the support of many members of the U.S. seafood supply chain and their legislators who are concerned by this apparent shift in interpretation without warning,” said Jennifer Adamski, Director of Logistics & Operations for KIF. “We were forced to halt shipping almost two weeks ago, which has created food supply disruptions and economic hardship to our industry, our customers, and our workers – who risk losing their jobs in Alaska and elsewhere.”

Public-Private Partnerships and Infrastructure Development in the Arctic

On 25th of August the Arctic Economic Council (AEC) hosted a hybrid roundtable discussion on public-private partnership (PPP) in the Arctic.  Infrastructure development such as roads, air- and seaports, broadband connectivity and logistics is crucial for sustainable economic development of the Arctic. “There are 4 million people living in the Arctic, a significant part

On 25th of August the Arctic Economic Council (AEC) hosted a hybrid roundtable discussion on public-private partnership (PPP) in the Arctic.  Infrastructure development such as roads, air- and seaports, broadband connectivity and logistics is crucial for sustainable economic development of the Arctic.

“There are 4 million people living in the Arctic, a significant part the population is indigenous people. In order to bring infrastructure to small and remote communities, private sector and government should join their efforts,” said Evgeny Ambrosov, the Chair of the AEC and deputy Chairman of the Management Board and Director of Maritime Operations, Shipping and Logistic of NOVATEK.

Nicolai Korchunov, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Ambassador at Large, and Chair of Senior Arctic Officials, emphasized that infrastructure development and digital connectivity reduces transportation costs and shortens delivery time, thus, integrating Arctic economy into the global market. Arctic Council strongly supports responsible, low-emission and sustainable investment in, and development of, resilient infrastructure.

Guggenheim partners, a global investment firm, has estimated that “infrastructure requirements in the Arctic region alone are expected to reach nearly $1 trillion over the next 15 years.” Yet, infrastructure projects are challenged by several socio-economic factors. Scarce population and vast distances between the Arctic communities make it difficult to generate commercial interest because of the economy of scale. Infrastructure development requires specific skills from local authorities to evaluate the projects. Moreover, sometimes there is a scepticism from the local population towards private sector investing in public infrastructure.

“PPP can be a good solution to finance infrastructure development, as it addresses a lot of challenges. AEC has developed the Arctic Investment Protocol as a guide for investors to follow. Presently we are collecting data on the best investment opportunities that lives up to the protocol, ” said Mads Qvist Frederiksen, the director of the Arctic Economic Council.

The roundtable on PPPs showcased success stories of infrastructure projects deployed in different Arctic states.

Lori Davey, Chair of the AEC Responsible Resource Development Working Group (RRDWG) presented Alaska United-Aleutians Fiber Project. Unalaska/Dutch Harbour is one of the largest seafood processing areas and the largest fishing port in the United States. Due to remoteness of the Aleutean islands, the community does not have access to a fibre-based network. Currently the area is serviced by satellite internet services.

GCI, a telecommunications company from Alaska, received a grant from US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to route a terrestrial broadband cable to Unalaska/Dutch Harbor connecting with several remote communities – King Cove, Sand Point, Akutan, Chignik Bay and Larsen Bay. GCI will also deploy an approximately 1280 kilometre subsea fibre-optic system to Kodiak island.

“We managed to argue that fish processing facilities fall under the agricultural activities and were awarded with a USD25 million federal grant from USDA. This is a great project that is going to bring an immense connectivity to that very, very remote region,” said Lori Davey, Vice President of Enterprise Markets at GCI.

Earlier in August the US Senate has approved the 1 trillion  USD infrastructure bill, after the House passes it Alaska will receive  550 billion USD in new spending over five years  for transportation, including electric and low-emitting transport as well as  renewable energy projects and broadband.

Cutis Shaw, president of Canadian telecommunication company Northwestel, introduced Arctic Connectivity Sustainability Matrix developed by the AEC Connectivity working group (CWG). The matrix provides an overview of different funding models to accelerate broadband development projects.  He also presented Mackenzie Valley Fibre Link, a 1,154-kilometre broadband cable connecting Fort Simpson in Northwest Territories with Inuvik and hitting in 6 communities on the way. Despite the fact that there is no economic case for the private company to develop infrastructure in that area, providing  access to the highspeed internet is crucial for  education, telemedicine services, emergency preparedness and business development to serve local populations. The project was financed through a bank debt, and now regional government holds the ownership of the asset, while Nortwestel is contracted to operate the project for 20 years.

“What is more, the fibre optic cable will serve a number of space agencies facilities are located near Inuvik, tracking satellites when they are on the other side of the world from Europe and Russia”, said Curtis Shaw.

Public-Private Partnerships is one financing model that can be used in the Arctic to develop the necessary infrastructure. Arctic Economic Council works on promoting investment opportunities and unite public and private partners in potential projects.

There is a short window to transport fuel and goods to the remote North when only accessible by plane or boat. Uqsuq, formed in 1996, has been a critical partner to the Government of Nunavut, and has been providing the fuel services to the city for the past 25 years. The new fuel contract was re-awarded under a competitive bid process.

“Uqsuq is an example of how we promote sustainable economic growth and build capacity for Inuit communities through trusted partnerships,” said Harry Flaherty, President, Uqsuq and Qikiqtaaluk Corporations. “We look forward to continuing to provide this essential service over the next 10 years, fueling the economy with employment and business opportunities.”

ATCO Frontec has built a strong foundation of work in Northern Canada, including providing facility management services at five Department of National Defence sites across the North. In addition, it has several Inuit partnerships with operations that include facility management services at Canadian Forces Station Alert and the maintenance of 157 microwave sites across Northern Canada for NorthwesTel. And recently, Nunavut Arctic Services Ltd, Frontec’s new joint venture with a majority Inuit partner, was awarded a five-year contract to provide facility management services at the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS), located in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.  “Working and operating in the North requires specialized skills and knowledge to meet the unique challenges of these remote locations,” added Mr. Landon.

After Year in the Arctic, Solo Developer Wins Prestigious Apple Design Award for Read-Aloud App for the Blind

ARLINGTON, Mass., June 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Solo developer Winston Chen, who designed an app for people with visual impairment while living above the Arctic Circle in Norway, has been named one of 12 winners worldwide of the prestigious Apple Design Award.

Chen’s “Voice Dream Reader” supports text-to-speech as well as visual reading for people who are blind or have low vision, people with dyslexia, or people with impaired motor functions.

For Chen, the award is the culmination of a decade of work that began in 2011, when he, his wife and their two children moved to a remote island in Norway above the Arctic Circle for a one-year sabbatical. It was during that year that Chen spent many a dark Arctic night learning how to build an app that could reinvent the way we read.

“For thousands of years, reading meant decoding phonetic symbols in black ink printed on white surfaces,” Chen said. “But the human brain is not wired for that, which is why it takes years to become a proficient visual reader. In fact, our brains are wired to communicate orally. I wanted to explore how technology could allow everyone to learn more naturally — by listening.”

Once Voice Dream Reader was born, Chen quickly realized the enormous applications it could have for people with disabilities. With natural sounding voices in 25 languages and adjustable speech rate, the app is also widely used by people who want to speed read or do their reading on the go. Available on the App Store, Voice Dream Reader has now seen over 350,000 downloads worldwide.

Chen was notified he had won Apple’s coveted prize during a June 10 online award presentation from the tech giant’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. The Apple Design Awards recognize excellence in innovation, ingenuity and technical achievement in app and game design.
