Nordic Mines: The Laiva mine produced 187 kilos of gold during 1Q 2014

The company has during the quarter continued to process ore from earlier mined
ore in stockpiles, which contains a lower head grade. In March it was decided
to temporarily stop the production at the Laiva mine until external financing
is secured.

The gold production during the quarter was 62 kilos in January, 63 kilos in
February and 63 kilos in March.

Since the filing for corporate reorganization at the beginning of July 2013,
the company has temporarily ceased mining due to cost savings. During this
time, the company processes ore from already mined ore at the stockpiles,
which contains a lower head grade than the ore taken straight from the mine
into the processing mill. The head grade was 0.6 gram gold per ton for the
first quarter compared to 0.8 gram gold per ton in the fourth quarter. The
lower head grade is due to a declining trend of lower head grade in the
remaining stock piles that has been processed during the first quarter.

During the quarter, a few mining tests were done in the Southern pit in
accordance with the new preliminary mining model, which was produced in
November 2013. The target was to preliminarily evaluate the mining model as
well as increase the head grade to the mill since the head grade in the stock
piles is low. It is yet too early to draw any conclusions.

At the end of March it was further decided to temporarily halt the processing
mill in order to stop the production. A restart of the operations at Laiva is
entirely dependent of an external financing being secured.

The throughput was 371 678 tonnes for the quarter, including negative impacts
from planned maintenance stops of roughly 5 days as well as reduced
throughput at the end of March ahead of the planned temporary production stop
at Laiva.

The availability was 87% in the first quarter compared to 84% in the fourth
quarter 2013. The gold recovery was 79% in the quarter, compared to 82% in
the previous quarter. The decrease in gold recovery is due to the lower head
grade.

The financial results report for the first quarter will be published on April
23rd2014.
