The Airijoki vanadium project In Sweden and the Koitelainen vanadium project in Finland, both contain JORC Code (2012) level inferred resources and have both undergone conceptual techo-economic studies.

The nickel projects in Norway all show a propensity for expansion, with accompanying copper and in some cases cobalt.
