Significant Progress is Being Made at Northland's Kaunisvaara Project Site

LUXEMBOURG, LUXEMBOURG--(Marketwire - July 19, 2011) - Northland Resources S.A. (TSX:NAU)(OSLO:NAUR)(FRANKFURT:NPK) ("Northland" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the completion of some significant progress at the Company's Kaunisvaara Project site. (The press release includes 4 photos – for more photos please log on to www.northland.eu).

"The project is proceeding according to plan. The most concrete verification of this is the ongoing casting for the processing plant," said Göran Arlefalk, Northland's Kaunisvaara Project Manager. "During the last days we have poured 1,200 tonnes of concrete to ensure a firm foundation for the two primary gyratory crushers, two autogenous grinding mills, seven vertical grinding mills ('VTM 3000'), magnetic separators and seven VPA press filters. These mills will be the heart of the operation, which expect to produce 5 million tonnes of high-grade iron ore concentrate per annum."

The current workforce totals 100 employees and it is expected to grow to 375 to complete the scheduled work for the fall.

To follow the work, including the continued casting, the building ancillary roads as well as the process water dam, Northland will be providing updated photos, films and a live camera feed in the Multimedia section of its website, www.northland.eu.

Northland is a development-stage mining company with a portfolio of iron ore projects in northern Sweden and Finland. The Company's Kaunisvaara Project will exploit two magnetite iron ore deposits in Sweden. The process will yield a very high-grade, high-quality magnetite iron concentrate. The construction of the Kaunisvaara project is well underway and production is planned to start in the 4th quarter of 2012. Northland has entered into industrial off-take contracts which will last for 7–8 years for the entire production from Kaunisvaara. The Company is also preparing a Definitive Feasibility Study for the Hannukainen Iron Oxide Copper Gold Project in Kolari, northern Finland. The study is expected late in the 4th quarter of 2011.
