Mawson Updates Permit Status at Rajapalot in Finland

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson") or (the "Company") (TSX:MAW)(FRANKFURT:MXR)(PINKSHEETS:MWSNF) reports that a decision has been made by TUKES (the Finnish Safety and Chemical Agency) to grant modified and renewed exploration claims titled Kairamaat 2 and 3 that cover a surface area of 1,462 hectares at Mawson's Rajapalot gold project in northern Finland, that entitles Mawson drill access during winter conditions within Natura 2000 biodiversity areas. The decision will take legal effect after a standard public appeal process. Further information as to the outcome of this process will be known in early August.

The decision outlines:

--  Renewal of the mineral rights to Mawson once the decision takes legal
    effect; and 
    
    
--  Details of allowable exploration methods, including deep drilling when
    the soil is frozen and covered by sufficient snow; 
    
    
--  The claims are valid for a period of 3 years, the maximum time allowable
    under the Mining Act. An application to extend this period can be made
    within 3 years up to a maximum of 15 years. 

Mr Hudson states, "Gaining the ability to drill our best targets in Natura 2000 biodiversity areas has been a key milestone we have been awaiting since the permits were applied for in October 2009. Over the last 2 years we have completed a comprehensive environmental study (a Natura 2000 assessment) to assess the impact that Mawson's exploration work will have on the biodiversity values. We understand the responsibility granted to us by this decision and look forward to working with the mining and environmental authorities to ensure our work is conducted according to global best practice methods. In the meantime, we await the finalization of the remaining legal process."

After consultation with the mining and environmental authorities a decision was also made to leave handling of the Kairamaat 1 area, which includes the Rompas vein-style prospects, to a later date to allow for additional background data to be collected and further discussions with stakeholders.
