British company Beowulf Mining hope to be given the go-ahead to mine vast iron ore deposits in northern Sweden.
They say test drilling shows the iron ore to be of good quality and that mining could provide hundreds of local jobs.
But local opinion on the proposed mine is divided, and the Sami reindeer herders who have been in the area for thousands of years say their way of life is under threat.
Clive Sinclair-Poulton is the executive chairman of Beowulf Mining.
