- Beowulf Mining said it had acquired a 14% interest in Balkans-focused explorer Vardar Minerals for £250k.

The company said it also had an option increase its ownership in Vardar.

The investment provided exposure to a number of porphyry-related copper, gold and base metal targets in the prospective Tethys Arc in Kosovo, Beowulf said.

'The region is rapidly becoming a focus for major exploration investment following significant discoveries in the last decade,' it added.
