Final report strengthens the opportunities for profitable mining operations in Fäbodtjärn

(AktieTorget: BOTX). The final report from LTU on the process mineralogical investigation shows that a very high yield is possible with only gravimetric methods.

The company now continues the discussions regarding how this area as soon and as cost-efficiently as possible can become a producing gold mine.
