Arctic Gold's business concept is to engage in exploration activities to discover and demonstrate commercially extractable gold and base metal deposits in Scandinavia. The strategy is primarily to carry out exploration work and either sell the project within a few years or to establish mining activities under the company's own control or through a partnership with other companies. Arctic Gold focuses mainly on the Bidjovagge project in northern Norway and current gold and base metal permits in Västerbotten and Norrbotten. Arctic Gold's shares are listed on NASDAQ OMX First North under the ticker ARCT. Certified Adviser is Erik Penser Bankaktiebolag. More information about company is available at
