changes in Company Management.

of CEO Pekka Perä, Chief Corporate Development Officer Lassi Lammassaari and CTO
Pertti  Pekkala and Environmental Manager Veli-Matti  Hilla as a newly appointed

Non-Executive  Director  Kirsi  Sormunen  has  announced  her  resignation  from
Talvivaara's  Board of  Directors due  to personal  reasons. Talvivaara's Annual

efforts for the Company and wish all the best for their endeavors in the future.
I  also  warmly  welcome  Veli-Matti  Hilla  as  a  new  member of our Technical

Talvivaara Mining Company Plc
Talvivaara Mining Company is an internationally significant base metals producer
with  its  primary  focus  on  nickel  and  zinc  using  a  technology  known as
bioheapleaching  to extract metals out  of ore. Bioheapleaching makes extraction
of  metals  from  low  grade  ore  economically  viable. The Talvivaara deposits
comprise  one of the largest known sulphide  nickel resources in Europe. The ore
body  is  estimated  to  support  anticipated  production  for  several decades.
Talvivaara has secured a 10-year off-take agreement for 100 per cent of its main
output  of nickel and cobalt to Norilsk Nickel and entered into a long-term zinc
streaming  agreement  with  Nyrstar.  Talvivaara  is  listed on the London Stock
Exchange  Main Market and NASDAQ OMX  Helsinki. Further information can be found
