recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - NORDIC GOLD CORP. (TSX-V: NOR)"Nordic" or the "Company") today announced the successful completion of the first pour of gold at its wholly owned Laiva Mine near Raahe in Finland.

On October 11, 2018 Laiva received written approval for startup and mining started on August 5, 2018.

The company acquired Laiva Mine in December 2017 for approximately $25 million in cash and shares. Since that time the company has completed an updated NI-43-101 Resource calculation, completed a PEA, recruited an experienced management team to operate the mine, completed all necessary permitting and approvals to operate. The company has also completed all the necessary plant maintenance and recommissioning.

Michael Hepworth, President and Chief Executive Officer said, ?The first pour is a critical but vital step in returning Laiva to commercial production. The last 18 months has been focused on using past production data and learning from this information. Many fixes have been implemented and as we move towards commercial production further improvements will be implemented to ensure appropriate economics and efficiencies. The team at the mine has done an outstanding job of getting back to production in an incredibly short timeframe. From care and maintenance to production in around 11 months is something everyone can be very proud of.?

Nordic?s first pour of gold was livestreamed at 10.20am EST on 30th November 2018. Interested investors can watch video of this first pour at www.nordic.gold

About the Company

Nordic Gold Corp. is a junior mining company with a near production gold mine in Finland.

A recently released PEA was conducted by John T. Boyd Company

Other Highlights include:

Pre-production capex $7,115,103.

75,981 ounces of average annual gold production at a cash cost of $863 per ounce and AISC of $974 per ounce.



Measured mineral resources of 355,000 tonnes at 1.132 g/t Au and Indicated mineral resources of 3,442,000 tonnes at 1.248 g/t Au.

Inferred mineral resources of 9,030,000 tonnes at 1.531 g/t Au.

Mill grade of 1.45 grams per tonne with a recovery of 90.4%.

Life of Mine production of 456,600 ounces gold over a 6-year mine life.

The PEA is preliminary in nature and includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that PEA results will be realized. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

As previously announced, when Nordic acquired the Laiva Gold Mine, the Company was granted, ?131,716,248 in tax loss provisions which may be used to offset future taxes should taxable income be earned in Finland prior to expiration of the tax loss carry forwards.a Gold Mine project and are contingent upon the Company achieving taxable net income per Finnish tax laws.

Nordic Gold?s management has identified several opportunities outside of the scope of the mine plan studied in the PEA, which could further improve the mine plan and the economics of the project. Most important of these being the three additional 100% owned exploration properties close to the mine. Nordic is currently conducting magnetic surveys on all of the company?s properties. All three properties are fully permitted for exploration.

The report also identifies near mine targets for exploration as potentially 3.2 to 5.1 million tonnes grading at 1.25 to 1.45 grams per tonne. This estimate is based on drilling beneath the south and north pits at depths up to 250 m below surface and is open at depth.

Mineral Resources:

Mineral Resources were prepared by JT Boyd (Nordic Press Release August 21, 2017).

The effective date of the estimate is August 9, 2017.

The mineral resources presented here were estimated using a block model with a block size of 9 m by 9 m by 9 m sub-blocked to a minimum of 3 m by 3 m by 3 m using ID3 methods for grade estimation. All mineral resources are reported using an open pit gold cut-off of 0.40 g/t Au.

Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues.

The Inferred Mineral Resource in this estimate has a lower level of confidence than that applied to an Indicated Mineral Resource and must not be converted to a Mineral Reserve. It is reasonably expected that the majority of the Inferred Mineral Resource could be expected to be upgraded to an Indicated Mineral Resource with continued exploration.

Other than an economic pit shell no attempt has been made to apply a mining dilution or a mining recovery factor.

Mineral resources were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (?CIM?), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definition and Guidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by CIM Council.

Numbers may not add due to rounding.

Disclosure: Companies typically rely on comprehensive feasibility reports on mineral reserve estimates to reduce the risks and uncertainties associated with a production decision.storical production data and current engineering work completed or in process by Nordic Gold, the Company intends to move forward with the development of this asset. The Company further cautions that it is not basing any production decision on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability, and therefore there is a much greater risk of failure associated with its production decision. In addition, readers are cautioned that inferred mineral resources are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves.

Nordic Gold currently has one highly prospective property in British Colombia. The Star Property is currently operated under a Joint Venture agreement between Nordic (49%) and Prosper Gold. (TSX-V: PGX) (51%).
