Leading Edge Materials Corp (CVE:LEM) (OTCMKTS:GULSF) provided an update on its mining lease application in Sweden, saying a local administration board has submitted its opinion to the country’s mining inspection agency.

The board, known as the Länsstyrelsen, does not presently support the regranting of the Norra Kärr mining lease, Leading Edge said late Friday in a statement. The company added that it will review the documentation and provide additional information as it becomes available.
