While the avalanche and its aftermath will obviously dominate our website’s “front page” for the foreseeable future, there was other major news during the past week, including the government’s decision to provide up to 400 million kroner to Store Norske so it can “pause” operations at Lunckefjell and employ a double shift at Mine 7. Links to those articles are below:

Ministry recommends giving 400 million kroner to Store Norske to suspend, rather than terminate, most operations; funding must still be approved by Parliament

Posting the rest of the individual articles as quickly as possible between avalanche updates. Meanwhile, the PDF version of last week’s issue can be downloaded at this link or by clicking the image to the right:

About Post Author

Mark Sabbatini

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
