"The completion of the Feasibility Study is a major milestone in Alderon's development and we are very pleased with the results. The completion of the Feasibility Study is another significant de-risking event that can be added to Alderon's confirmation of port access, Nalcor Stage III transmission line engineering and assessment agreement and strategic partnership with Hebei Iron and Steel ("Hebei")," says Tayfun Eldem, President and CEO of Alderon. "The study demonstrates robust economics on the Kami Property and the results meet all of the threshold criteria under our agreements with Hebei. Our schedule anticipates receipt of permits toward the end of 2013 and construction to follow immediately, with initial production in Q4 2015."

The FS demonstrates very attractive project economics. Based on a production rate of 8 million tonnes per year of iron ore concentrate at a grade of 65.2% iron, the FS shows a Net Present Value ("NPV") of $3.244 billion at a cash flow discount rate of 8%. The internal rate of return ("IRR") for the project is 29.3%. The level of accuracy of the FS is considered to be +/-15% and a foreign exchange rate of $1.00US = $1.00CDN was used.

On an after-tax basis, the FS shows a NPV of $1.858 billion and payback period of 4.5 years at a cash flow discount rate of 8%. The after-tax IRR for the project is 23.1%. The after-tax analysis is based on a number of assumptions which will be fully set out in the Report.

Financial Analysis

Based on the assumption that commercial production would begin in Q4 2015 and would continue for 30 years, the following results were obtained (pre-tax):

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The mining engineering work performed for this FS was based on the 3-D block model provided by Alderon and audited by WGM. Pit optimizations were performed on Measured and Indicated Resources and the pit shell having the optimal discounted NPV and strip ratio at a cut-off grade of 15% Total Fe was selected for the mineral reserve estimate. The final mineral reserve was estimated after applying engineering and operational design parameters. BBA is of the opinion that the mineral reserve estimate derived in this FS reasonably quantifies the economical ore mineralization of the Rose Deposit. The reserve estimate is as of December 17, 2012 and the mineral reserves presented in the table below are included in the mineral resource estimate set out above. Only the Measured and Indicated Resources within the Rose Central and the Rose North Deposits have been considered in the FS and have been used for the estimation of mineral reserves. The mineral resources within the Mills Lake Deposit have not been considered in the FS.

Project Summary

The Kami Property is located approximately 10 km from the town of Wabush in Western Labrador and approximately 6 km south from the Wabush Mines mining lease owned by Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. The proposed project at the Kami site, as stated in the FS, includes the following components:


--  The Rose ore deposit and waste rock disposal areas. 
--  Processing infrastructure including a crushing and grinding circuit,
    spiral plant, magnetite plant, and fine tailings thickener. 
--  Tailings Management Facility. 
--  Ancillary infrastructure to support the mine and process plant (gate and
    guardhouse, reclaim water pumphouse, truck wash bay and repair shop,
    electrical substation, administration/office buildings, maintenance
    offices, warehouse area and employee facilities, conveyors, loadout
    silo, stockpiles, sewage and effluent water treatment systems, mobile
    equipment and transmission lines). 
--  A temporary construction camp is located off-site. 
--  The rail infrastructure, including the rail line connecting to Quebec
    North Shore & Labrador (QNSL) Railway, the rail loop and the service
    tracks consist of a total of 25 km of new track passing to the south and
    east of the Town of Wabush. 
--  Nalcor will provide power directly to the Kami site main substation by
    means of a 315 kV transmission line.

Facilities at the Port will include:


--  A rail transportation component consisting of a Sept-Iles Junction
    interchange, railway line and staging tracks. 
--  A car dumper. 
--  A stacker/reclaimer system. 
--  A concentrate storage area with a capacity of 550,000 tonnes. 
--  A conveyor system feeding the future common deep water shiploading
    facility, capable of loading high capacity vessels destined for Asia,
    operated by the Port of Sept-Iles.

The proposed project will produce eight million metric tonnes of iron ore concentrate per year and will ship concentrate to market via the Port of Sept-Iles facilities at Pointe Noire, Quebec. Ore processing will take place at the Kami site and will involve the following steps:


--  Ore will be mined from the open pit mine using conventional drill and
    blast techniques and transported via haul trucks; 
--  Ore will be hauled to the primary crusher in proximity of the pit and
    the crushed ore will be delivered to the stockpile and to the process
    plant via conveyor; 
--  The process plant will include grinding, screening, and gravity and
    magnetic concentration; 
--  Tailings (process waste) will be pumped to the tailings impoundment area
    south of the process plant; and 
--  Iron ore concentrate will be loaded onto gondola rail cars for
    transportation to the Port of Sept-Iles where it will be stockpiled and
    in turn transferred to ships for delivery to market.

Development Timetable

A construction schedule has been established that is contingent on the following milestones to be realized:

The environmental permitting process began with project registration initiated with the submission of the project description in October 2011. An environmental impact statement was submitted in September 2012 and based on the expected duration of the various regulatory proceedings, it is expected that the permits, which will allow construction, will be issued in November 2013. No site work is anticipated prior to this date. Construction is set to start in November 2013 and is based on a construction schedule of 24 months including Pre-Operational Verifications and plant handover to operations.

The documents filed by Alderon in the Environmental Assessment process include provision to increase planned production to 16 million tonnes per year. However, the FS only contemplates an 8 million tonne per year production scenario. Alderon intends to proceed with the 8 million tonne per year production scenario outlined in the FS and it may evaluate the feasibility of a 16 million tonne per year production scenario after the commencement of commercial production at the Kami Property. Such evaluation will be based on several factors including market projections for iron ore supply and demand.
