    Talvivaara's co-operation consultations for temporary lay-offs concluded

Talvivaara  Mining Company Plc ("Talvivaara" or the "Company") has
concluded co-
operation  consultations for  temporary lay-offs  for all  personnel groups. All
three  corporate entities, Talvivaara Mining Company Plc, Talvivaara Sotkamo Ltd
and Talvivaara Exploration Ltd, were within the scope of the consultations.

Following  the consultations, Talvivaara will  temporarily lay off 184 employees
between 18 February and 30 June 2013. The maximum duration of the lay-off period
is  90 days  per  individual  employee.  At  the start of the consultations, the
Company estimated the maximum number of employees impacted to be 230. Talvivaara
currently employs approximately 580 people in total.

lay-offs are carried out to support the Company's cost savings initiatives and overall efficiency, and to adjust the level of personnel to the temporarily suspended ore production. Talvivaara's ore production has been suspended since September 2012 due to the prevailing water balance situation. The Company anticipates re-commencing mining of new ore by the end of June 2013 once the main part of the Kuusilampi open pit has been de-watered.
