(about 135 million SEK) with the Company's current creditors
* Target to reach a settlement with suppliers including a 90 percent

* Cash contribution totaling at least SEK 150 million

Nordic Mines negotiates with the Companys creditors

As previously announced, the Company is in negotiations with current
creditors; UniCredit Bank AG, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Intl Ltd and
Finnvera Plc. The Company's objective is to
reach an agreement that significantly reduces the Copany's outstanding debt,
extends the repayment period and, in addition, provides interest rates and
covenants that facilitate a cash flow positive Laiva operation. The parties
have, as per today, not entered into any binding agreements.

Conditions for application for subscription

Applications to subscribe for shares in the Rights Issue, with or without
preferential rights, will be conditional upon that an agreement is reached
between the Company, Nordic Mines Oy and the Company's creditors regarding,
among other things, write-downs of existing claims under the facility
agreement further described in the Prospectus and that the Swedish and
Finnish court respectively has determined on composition plans in regards to
the ongoing Swedish company reorganization and the Finnish company
reorganization relating to companies within the Nordic Mines Group.

Restart of the Laiva operations

Provided that the transactions, rights issue and settlements with creditors
and suppliers, are succesfully implemented and a gold price at current
levels, Nordic Mines expect to restart a cash flow positive mine operation.

The company estimates that an investment of about SEK 70 million is required
during the first year after the restart to streamline operations in
accordance with the Action Plan. The majority relates to investments in the
mill in order to increase throughput and availability. Out of the SEK 70
million, the Company expects that capital expenditures of some SEK 30 million
is needed upfront at the restart of mine operations.

In connection with the work done during the autumn of 2013, in order to
produce a preliminary economic valuation of the Laiva project and additional
assumptions, financial projections were made indicating an overall positive
cash flow over the life-of-mine. These initial calculations have since been
the subject of continued development and accordingly been adjusted as new
information has been analysed and taken into consideration. The Company
believes that the mineral resource, updated by SRK, will improve the
conditions for profitable mine operations . A restart of mine operations is
however dependent on the availability of sufficient external funding. The
company estimates that approximately SEK 150 million is needed to restart
mine operations and to facilitate the implementation of the Action Plan.
