KEY EVENTS IN PAHTAVAARA IN THE FOURTH QUARTER 2013

The final results from the completed full-scale test of the Karoliina
mineralization at the Pahtavaara mine confirmed that gold recoveries exceeded 80
percent. The full-scale test of the Karoliina mineralization at the Pahtavaara
mine was conducted from September 26th to October 6th 2014, a total of
approximately 15,000 tonnes of ore was processed during the period. The overall
gold recovery in the full-scale test exceeded 80 percent, split into a
gravimetric process and a flotation process. The flotation concentrate also
contained a substantial amount of copper. The Company assesses that the copper
bi-product credit should be able to increase the product value.

The production was temporarily suspended during 8 days in November for a
scheduled maintenance.

The environmental authority has approved the mining and processing of sulfur and
chalcopyrite rich ore in the existing environmental permit.

The corporate restructuring process in the Finnish subsidiary is proceeding
according to plan.

The full scale production of the Karoliina ore commenced according to plan in
the beginning of January 2014.

The interim report for the full year and fourth quarter 2013 will be published
on February 20th, 2014.
