Nordic Gold wholly owns the Laiva Gold Mine in Finland. The Laiva Gold Mine is an open pit operation with a 2m tonne p.a. process plant in place. The sunk capital of the project to date is in excess of CAD 300 million, the majority being spent on the start of the art process plant built by Metso and Outotec. The mine is fully permitted and ready for production. The Company expects to publish an updated technical report with ~379,000 ozs in Measured & Indicated resources with a total resource of ~1.2 million ozs at 1.53 g/t. The updated report will be followed by a drill campaign to further expand the resource base and facilitate the opening of a further pit, totaling three.
