					NOMI - Exploration program for tungsten (wolfram)

Nordic Mining holds 6 mineral claims for tungsten in Målvika, Norway.

Previous studies and geological mapping of the area have disclosed significant tungsten
resources. An estimated resource of 2.5 mill. tons ore containing 0.7 - 0.9% WO3 is
indicated. At such level, Målvika is among the largest tungsten resources in Europe. A
prospectus describing the resources was prepared in 2001 (the prospectus is available at
www.nordicmining.com).

The commercial potential for tungsten is raised in the last years due to significant price
increase; from USD 50 to approximately USD 250 per mtu (metric ton unit) in 5 - 6 years. A
metric ton unit contains 10 kg WO3 which holds 7.93 kg of tungsten. Consequently, Nordic
Mining will assess the possibilities in Målvika with increased focus.

As a first phase, Nordic Mining will conduct exploration program in Målvika starting in 2007.
The purpose will be to achieve better understanding of the geological structures and the
possibilities to advance to project preparations.
