General 2015-05-10The Kaunisvaara project comprises two iron ore deposits: Tapuli and Sahavaara, located approximately 100 km north of the Arctic Circle in the municipality of Pajala and near the village of Kaunisvaara. The Sahavaara deposit is located close to the centre of the Kaunisvaara village. This has been historically been referred to as "Stora Sahavaara", but given the use of the name Sahavaara for one of the mineralised lenses identified, Northland has now generalized the name to simply Sahavaara. The Tapuli deposit is located approximately 4 km to the north of Sahavaara. The Tapuli project comprises Palotieva to the north and Tapuli to the south, the latter comprising the majority of the overall deposit. When constructed, the project will comprise of two conventional open pit mines and a magnetite processing operation producing a concentrate product. Associated infrastructure will include access, service, and dumper roads, as well as a waste water treatment plant, two process plant buildings, two stockpile buildings, an administration building, workshops and truck bays, stores building metallurgical laboratory, plant services building, two pump station buildings and an assay laboratory. Export will be through Narvik port. Northland is addressing the topics regarding the use of the Malmbanan, the rail from Svappavaara to Narvik.
