Investment Highlights

Investment Highlights

  • Focus on Tapuli, Hannukainen, Stora Sahavaara and Pellivuoma

  • Management priority is developing early cash flow

    • start up of Tapuli mine with Kaunisvaara mill

  • Existing infrastructure support early production of up to 2-3 Mt pa

  • Resource base growing

  • Staged growth of production up to 8-10 Mt pa of iron ore products

●Kaunisvaara


Tapuli fast track to cash flow

Tapuli: Fast Track to Cash Flow

Fast Track Tapuli

Open-pittable resource

Existing infrastructure can take Tapuli’s full production with minor upgrades

Preliminary studies suggest lowest CapEx, highest IRR and quickest payback

Synergies with nearby Stora Sahavaara and Pellivuoma projects


Tapuli mine

Tapuli mine

Open cast mine

Minimum operation time 10 years

Verified resource 65 Mton (NI 43-101)

Additional reserves ca 40 Mton

Blasting daytime, ca 1-4 times/week

  • Planned industry layout:

  • Mine

  • Mill

  • Service facilities

  • Office

  • Waste rock deposit

  • Tailings storage facility

  • Access & transportation roads

Georange r j rn guld f r pajala 2 april 2009

Waste rock

  • A total of 250 Mton will be mined

  • May be used for construction purposes

  • Area ca 330 ha

  • Height ca 75 m


Anrikningsprocess

Anrikningsprocess

Planerad genomsnittlig produktion

År 1: 3 Mton malm, motsvarande ca 1 Mton Slig

År 2-10: 10 Mton malm, motsvarande ca 3 Mton Slig

Ansökan avser 20 Mton per år

Process

Krossning, malning, magnetseparering, avvattning och möjligen torkning

Inget flotationssteg


Mill tailings storage

Mill tailings storage

  • Total tonnage c. 70 Mton

  • Total area c. 340 ha

  • Final height c. 60 m

ca 2-3 m


Efterbehandling

Efterbehandling

Byggnader tas bort och vägar återställs. Ledningar kvar i marken.

Gråberg täcks med morän och vegeteras. Sandmagasin vegeteras. Gödningsmedel kan behöva tillföras.

Dagbrottet bildar en sjö


Transport

Transport

  • Initially truck (60 ton net) to Kolari – rail to Kemi

  • Extension of railroad to Kaunisvaara being investigated

  • 290 return transports per day (c. 12 per hour)

Logistics key issues

Logistics – Key issues

Infrastructure

  • Initial transportation Kaunisvaara – Kolari on road

  • Long term solution Kaunisvaara – Kolari to be railroad

  • Increase capacity on rail from Kolari region to Tornio up to 10 Mt

  • Develop Kemi port initially for 3 Mt and up to 10 Mt in case Kemi is the only port going forward

  • Kemi port dredging to enable access by feasible vessels

18


Transportation from kaunisvaara tapuli to finnish rail

Transportation from Kaunisvaara/Tapulito Finnish Rail

Infrastructure

  • 2011 – 2013 trucking

  • Rail alternative is studied

  • Alternative studies on pipeline and conveyor belt in progress

  • Future solution operational from 2012/13

  • Loading station south of Kolari, land available

  • Rail – Necassary

Production timeline estimate

Production Timeline Estimate

Northland’s Future Growth

2013 / 2014

  • Tapuli at full production 1.5 Mt Concentrate

  • Pellivuoma – ramps up production to 1.5 Mt of Concentrate

  • Stora Sahavaara – begin production of 2 Mt of Concentrate

  • Hannukainen begins production and ramps up to 2-3 Mt of DR pellet feed

2012

  • Tapuli – ramp up production to 1.5Mt Concentrate

  • Pellivuoma – begin production of Concentrate

2011

  • Tapuli – Begin production of Concentrate

2010

  • Tapuli – Begin construction

Production:

1-2 Mt/y 3 Mt/y 8-10 Mt/y

Summary nri projects

Summary NRI projects

  • Staged development to build the assets in Sweden and Finland

  • Initial cash flow will be the base to increase production and employment

  • Joint effort necessary - NO “Finnkamp”

  • The projects will create employment within NRI as well as support structures, services etc

  • Employment will be created in the whole region – in both countries


Summary logistics

Summary Logistics

  • Rail Kaunisvaara – Tornio with capacity + 8 Mt necessary for development of the projects

  • Rail from Kaunisvaara to be operational from 2013

  • Port development Kemi ready 2011

  • Dredging Kemi ready 2011/12

  • Ice breaker capacity must be expanded
