SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
What is our business?
The Company is a junior mineral exploration stage company in the business of acquiring, exploring, and evaluating natural resource properties. The Company is currently focused on further exploration and development of its 100% interest in the advanced exploration stage Tomtebo property (the “Tomtebo Property”) located in the Bergslagen Mining District of south-central Sweden, comprising three contiguous exploration permits totalling 5,143.86 hectares. The Company also holds: a 100% interest in the Svärdsjö exploration property, located in the Bergslagen Mining District (the “Svärdsjö Property”); a 100% interest in the Gruvberget exploration property, located in the Bergslagen Mining District (the “Gruvberget Property”) and a 20% interest in the Bakar property located on North Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada (the “Bakar Property”). On January 5, 2023, the Company also announced that their subsidiary, Bergslagen Metals AB, applied for a 2,302 hectare mineral license to explore for vanadium, nickel, molybdenum, zinc, and other elements, covering approximately 68% of the polymetallic Viken Deposit located in Jamtland County, central Sweden (the “Viken Deposit”). The Viken Deposit is the largest undeveloped Alum Shale vanadium-uranium-molybdenum-nickel-copper-zinc deposit in Sweden, and amongst the largest deposits by total historic mineral resources of vanadium and uranium in the world. The Company considers the Tomtebo Property to be its only material property for the purposes of applicable Canadian securities laws. For more information on the Tomtebo Property, refer to the Company’s AIF and the technical report titled “43-101 Update Technical Report on the Tomtebo Project, Bergslagen Region of Sweden” (the “Technical Report”), prepared by Mustafa Atalay, M.Sc. CPG of DAMA Engineering Co., a Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101, with an effective date of October 15, 2020 and an amended date of February 26, 2021. The Technical Report is available in its entirety on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and readers should review it in its entirety for a full description of the Tomtebo Property.
On January 10, 2022, the Company reported assay results from grab and chip rock samples recovered from geological fieldwork carried out in late-2021 at its polymetallic Svärdsjö Property.
On January 18, 2022, the Company reported assay results from grab and chip rock samples recovered from geological fieldwork carried out in late-2021 at its polymetallic Gruvberget Property. This fieldwork concentrated on reconnaissance prospecting and geochemical sampling at the Gruvberget South and North zones, which represents less than 10% of the mineralized trend that is enclosed by the 5,286 hectare Gruvberget Property.
On February 28, 2022, the Company reported assay results for the remaining eleven drill holes from the Phase II drill program at the high grade polymetallic Tomtebo Property. A total of 4,906 m in eleven drill holes was completed during the Phase II drill program that was carried out from October to December 2021.
On March 15, 2022, the Company provided an update on permitting and announced plans to conduct drilling on the Tomtebo Property, the Gruvberget Property and the Bakar Property. The next phase of drilling on the Tomtebo Property commenced in early-April and comprised 1,200 m in three holes. Drilling stepped out below high grade polymetallic mineralization at the Steffenburgs zone. The maiden drill program at the Gruvberget Property commenced in early-May and comprised 1,800 m in ten holes. Drilling concentrated on the Gruvberget North zone where historic drilling has delineated continuous polymetallic mineralization along a 550 m strike length that extends to a vertical depth of 160 m.
On April 11, 2022, the Company announced the commencement of the drilling program on the Tomtebo Property previously announced on March 15, 2022.
On April 21, 2022, the Company announced the results of the final airborne electromagnetic and magnetic data at the Gruvberget Property. The SkyTEM survey identified 13 conductive targets on the Gruvberget Property.
On May 16, 2022, the Company announced the results of the final airborne electromagnetic and magnetic data at the Svärdsjö Property. The SkyTEM survey identified five conductive targets on the Svärdsjö Property.
On June 8, 2022, the Company provided an update on core drilling at the Tomtebo Property. The Company completed 750 m in two holes. Drill core samples were sent for assay preparation and then for analysis.
On July 13, 2022, the Company announced the completion of its core drilling program at the Gruvberget Property. Drill core samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Malå, Sweden for assay preparation and then to ALS Geochemistry in Loughrea, Ireland for analysis.
On August 17, 2022, the Company announced assay results for the Spring 2022 drill program at the Tomtebo Property.
On September 21, 2022, the Company announced assay results for the Spring 2022 drill program at the Gruvberget Property.
On October 3, 2022, the Company reported results from a soil sampling orientation survey and additional rock grab sampling at the Gruvberget Property. Soil samples were recovered on three east to west survey lines located across and north of the Gruvberget Property’s North Zone.
On October 24, 2022, the Company announced the identification of four new high priority targets on the Gruvberget Property. Detailed soil sampling grids have been completed over the new target areas with Ionic Leach geochemical results pending.
On November 22, 2022, the Company announced the Ionic Leach geochemical results from a detailed soil sampling program at the Gruvberget Property. Soil samples were recovered from four target zones (North zone extension, South zone extension, Gyllingen, and Backen) identified by historic data compilation and geophysical anomalies (conductive and magnetic) from the SkyTEM survey flown in late-2021. A total of the 442 soil samples were analyzed by Ionic Leach methods.
On December 14, 2022, the Company reported compilation work from historical exploration data at the Svärdsjö Property. The Mining Inspectorate of Sweden (Bergsstaten) had recently relinquished exploration data from Swedish mining company, Boliden, after a confidentiality period of three years. The historical data revealed several priority target areas.
On January 25, 2023, the Company announced the reporting by Swedish media that a majority of the Swedish Parliament has resolved to allow for exploration and mining of uranium in Sweden. On January 19, 2023, The Liberals, a member of the current Swedish governing coalition, internally voted to support the lifting of the moratorium in place since 2018. A motion from the Moderate Party, to which Prime Minister Kristersson belongs, to remove the uranium mining moratorium in Sweden is expected to be voted on by the Swedish Parliament in March 2023.
There are no material facts about the securities being distributed that have not been disclosed in this offering document or in any other document filed by the Company in the 12 months preceding the date of this offering document.
What are the business objectives that we expect to accomplish using the available funds?
The Company intends to use the net funds from the Offering for additional exploration and advancement of the Company’s Tomtebo Property and Gruvberget Property. With the anticipated minimum funding, the Company’s priorities are to:
- Complete an additional 2,000 metres of exploration drilling as part of the ongoing drilling program at the Tomtebo Property. The cost to complete this drilling program is estimated to be approximately $600,000 and is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2023.

How will we use the available funds?
|Description of intended use of available funds listed in order of priority||Assuming minimum of offering only||Assuming 100% of offering|
|Complete the ongoing drilling program at the Tomtebo Property||$600,000||$600,000|

The above noted allocation of capital and anticipated timing represents the Company’s current intentions based upon its present plans and business condition, which could change in the future as its plans and business conditions evolve. Although the Company intends to expend the proceeds from the Offering as set forth above, there may be circumstances where, for sound business reasons, a reallocation of funds may be deemed prudent or necessary and may vary materially from that set forth above, as the amounts actually allocated and spent will depend on a number of factors, including the Company’s ability to execute on its business plan. See the “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information” section above.
The most recent audited annual financial statements and interim financial report of the Company included a going-concern note. The Company is still in the exploration stage and the Company has not yet generated positive cash flows from its operating activities, which may cast doubt on the Company 's ability to continue as a going concern. The Offering is intended to permit the Company to continue to explore its properties and conduct additional drilling with the goal of updating mineral resource estimates, and is not expected to affect the decision to include a going concern note in the next annual financial statements of the Issuer.
