External comparative study by SRK Consulting shows superior carbon footprint for Engebø

In March 2022 SRK Consulting (UK) Ltd, conducted an analysis to compare the
Green House Gas ("GHG") emissions associated with the Engebø project, with
existing operators in the global titanium value-chain. The comparative study
shows that Engebø Rutile and Garnet has the lowest carbon footprint compared to
five major operators. The annual GHG footprint of the Engebø project is 3,058
tons of CO2e with an estimated carbon intensity of 0.01 tCO2e per ton finished
product, which is one to two orders of magnitude lower than comparable
operators. The study was based on available information published by the
respective companies, predominantly in annual reports[1]. The comparative study
was based on reported Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions[2]. The graph shows major
titanium raw material producers globally and related main regions of operations.

The calculated GHG emissions for the Engebø project was done by SRK and aligns
with the World Resources Institute's Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard
("GHG Protocol"). The calculation includes scope 1 and 2 emissions and excluded
emissions from up and downstream in the value chain, described as Scope 3.

To further assess and benchmark the environmental performance and global warming
potential of the Engebø rutile product a Life Cycle Assessment ("LCA") is
currently carried out by UK based Consultant, Minviro. The LCA is a cradle-to
-gate analysis that covers all production stages from the mine to a finished
product. Results from the LCA will be published during Q2 2022.

the first European producer of battery grade lithium hydroxide.

In addition, Nordic Mining holds interests in other initiatives at various
stages of development. This includes patented rights for a new technology for
production of alumina and exploration of seabed minerals.

[1] GHG is reported in tons of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e), meaning emission of non-
CO2 GHGs have been "normalised" to CO2 using their 100-year global warming
potentials.

[2] Scope 1 refers to direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. Scope 2
covers indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam,
heating, and cooling consumed by the reporting company.
