LUXEMBOURG, LUXEMBOURG -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Northland Resources S.A. (OSLO: NAUR)(FRANKFURT: NPK)(OMX: NAURo) - together with its subsidiaries "Northland", "NRSA" or the "Company") announces that the Company and the relevant labor unions have reached an understanding concerning organizational changes. The Company also announces a change in management as Willy Sundling, Vice President Environment, Health and Safety, will leave the company.
As previously announced by the Company, Northland is making organizational changes as a part of the Company's new strategy which was announced on June 30, 2014. The Company has now reached an understanding with the relevant labor unions concerning organizational changes. The changes include movement of staff, a reduced number of administrative employees and a reduction of the executive management team.
The Company will move parts of the administrative staff currently allocated in Lulea, closer to the operations in Pajala and the number of employees will be reduced. Redundancy affects 21 positions within the administrative staff of the Swedish subsidiaries. Negotiations with the relevant labor unions regarding the concerned employees will continue. The Company will revert with the outcome of these negotiations and any possible further changes in the executive management team.
"I'm convinced that this is the right way forward. It is a result of the current situation in the iron ore market and the challenges we have in front of us. Moving our team closer to the mine is natural at this stage and one of the steps taken in order to optimize our operations", commented CEO, Johan Balck.
Furthermore, Willy Sundling who most recently held the position as Vice President of Environment, Health and Safety will leave the Company. Willy Sundling has held several positions within Northland and will be available for the Company for some time.
Northland is a producer of iron ore concentrate, with a portfolio of production, development and exploration mines and projects in northern Sweden and Finland. The first construction phase of the Kaunisvaara project is complete and production ramp-up started in November 2012. The Company expects to produce high-grade, high-quality magnetite iron concentrate in Kaunisvaara, Sweden, where the Company expects to exploit two magnetite iron ore deposits, Tapuli and Sahavaara. Northland has entered into off-take contracts with three partners for the entire production from the Kaunisvaara project over the next seven to ten years. The Company has also finalized a Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") for its Hannukainen Iron Oxide Copper Gold ("IOCG") project in Kolari, northern Finland.
