Northland Resources Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

LUXEMBOURG, LUXEMBOURG -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Northland Resources S.A. (TSX:NAU)(FRANKFURT:NPK)(OSLO:NAUR)(OMX:NAURo) ("Northland" or the "Company") announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

The President and CEO of Northland Resources S.A., Karl-Axel Waplan, made the following comments on the report for the third quarter of 2012:

"The third quarter of 2012 was yet another period in which we were able to achieve a number of important milestones, and the Company is now very close to establishing itself as a producer of iron concentrate. At mid-October we blasted the first iron ore in our Tapuli mine and, within a few weeks, we expect to start the process plant and to begin loading the 90-tonne trucks for onward transport to Pitkajarvi and then by rail to the port in Narvik. The first shipments to customers are expected to be made in the first quarter 2013.

"During the quarter we executed two drawdowns of in total about USD 240 million from the bond loan facility. This will enable us to start production at the Kaunisvaara project.

"The logistics chain is very important for Northland and I am thus very pleased that we during the third quarter received the confirmation from the Swedish Transport Administration that they have allocated the four rail slots that we requested on the rail line from Pitkajarvi to Narvik. Also the road from the mine in Kaunisvaara to the trans-loading terminal in Pitkajarvi will be upgraded following the Swedish Governments decision to invest SEK 1.3 billion which will upgrade the road to ensure capacity for 90-tonne trucks. Following the initial upgrade and thorough test runs, Northland and the truck operator Cliffton Mining were awarded dispensation to use trucks with a gross weight of 90 tonnes instead of the Swedish standard of 60 tonnes. The heavier trucks will reduce the wear on the road as well as the environmental impact."
