Capella Minerals exits gold exploration at Southern Gold Line, Sweden

VANCOUVER, BC, September 28, 2022 /CNW/ – Capella Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: CMIL) (OTCQB: CMILF) (FRA: N7D2) (“Capella” or the “Company”) declares having informed EMX Royalty Corp (TSXV: EMX) (NYSE: EMX) (“EMX”) of its intention to return 7 gold exploration claims which constitute approximately 90% (466 km²) of Southern Gold Line’s original property package in northern Sweden. However, Capella will retain a 100% interest in an eighth permit (Fäboliden Södra 103) covering an area of ​​44 km2 and which is currently being explored for high-grade copper targets.

Eric RothPresident and Chief Executive Officer of Capella, said, “Capella’s decision to cease gold exploration activities in the Southern Gold Line area is directly attributable to two factors. First, the company will focus its Scandinavian exploration efforts on its portfolio of high-grade copper and battery metals. projects in Norway and Finland (including the Løkken and Kjøli projects, also acquired from EMX). Secondly, Dragon Mining Ltd (HK: 1712) recently announced that its application for an environmental permit to start large-scale gold mining on the adjacent Fäboliden project had been rejected by the Swedish court. Given the Fäboliden decision, a prudent course of action for Capella would be not to continue investing in a project that currently does not have a clear path to obtain permits for potential future development.

Capella, however, will continue to be exposed to gold exploration success through its two Canadian joint ventures – Savant and Domain, which are respectively operated by Prospector Metals Corp. (TSXV: PPP) and Yamana Gold Inc (TSX: YRI), as well as the Katajavaara-Aakenus project in Finland. I look forward to keeping the market informed of the progress of all projects.”
