  • 2. Agenda  Introduction    Investment highlights Financial information Conclusion 2
  • 3. Nordic Iron Ore at a glance  Restarting Ludvika Mines – Blötberget – concession granted – Väsman field – under further exploration – Håksberg – concession granted  A brownfield iron ore project  Existing rail from mine to deep water port  Environmental permit expected shortly  Scoping study shows very attractive ROI 3
  • 4. Nordic Iron Ore - Project Up date Major Achievements 2013  New Scoping study Ludvika Mines - double production capacity  Definite Feasibility Study - Phase 1 Blötberget commenced  New Financier - State Investment Fund Inlandsinnovation AB  Increase in mineral resources; + 180%  LoI Oxelösund Port – secured port alternative  National Transport Administration – Commenced the rail project  1st Customer – LoI for coarse fines  Environmental Court proceedings commenced October 4
  • 5. Our targets  Production 4.3 Mtpa  Production start coarse fines: Q3 2015  Start new beneficiation plant Q3 2016  Concentrate 67% Fe or better 5
  • 6. Solid economics  IRR 24 per cent  Pay back period 5.4 years  At least 15 year life of mine 6
  • 7. Competitive cost level Competitive cash cost and premium product Fortescue USD 76/dmt /NIO 7
  • 8. Agenda  Introduction  Investment highlights   Financial information Conclusion 8
  • 9. One of Sweden’s largest mineralisations Håksberg: Indicated 25 mt @ 36% Inferred 12 mt @ 36% Väsmans South mineralisation: Indicated 7 mt @ 39% Inferred 86 mt @ 38% Blötberget : Indicated 30 mt @ 45% Inferred 10 mt @ 43% 9
  • 10. One of Sweden’s largest iron mineralisations Håksberg: Indicated 25 mt @ 36% Inferred 12 mt @ 36% 3 Väsmans South mineralisation: Indicated 7 mt @ 39% Inferred 86 mt @ 38% Blötberget : Indicated 30 mt @ 45% Inferred 10 mt @ 43% 10
