INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – JUNE 2016
* Profit after financial items amounted to SEK 56 million (75) for the second quarter 2016 and SEK 125 million (177) for January-June. * Net turnover for the second quarter was SEK 413 million (456). * The list price for NBSK pulp over the second quarter was 7% lower in USD and 9% lower in SEK, compared to the second quarter 2015. In SEK, the price decrease was 2% compared with the first quarter 2016. * Production volumes in the second quarter rose by 4% compared with the second quarter 2015 and by 5% compared with the first quarter 2016. Production during the quarter totalled 100,000 tonnes. * The Company’s investments in the Agenda 500 development programme continue to increase efficiency and the rate of production.   * In the second quarter shareholders were paid dividends totalling SEK 76 million.   * Lennart Eberleh will take over as new President and CEO of Rottneros AB on 1 September 2016. Comments by the President   A new milestone for the Group   Production volumes continuing to rise The Rottneros Group reports a good second quarter, in which the decline in operating profit compared to the same period last year may be traced to external factors, such as lower pulp prices and a slightly weaker USD. Return on capital employed, measured over a rolling 12-month period, was a strong 19.8 per cent. In a sector-wide comparison, our return on capital remains at the top end. Our Agenda 500 development programme continues to bear fruit, in the form of steadily rising production levels and productivity. The aggregated production volume for our two mills grew by 4 per cent during the quarter, rising to 100,000 tonnes, a record for an individual quarter and a milestone for the Group. The high production levels are the result of goal-focused work and the investments being carried out within the framework of Agenda 500, aiming at a production volume of at least 460,000 tons per year in the long term. A resolution that a dividend of SEK 0.50 per share be paid was approved by the AGM in May. The Group’s strong cash flows and balance sheet mean that our capacity for paying dividends is strong also going forward.   Market moving in the right direction Compared with the levels in early 2015, pulp prices have declined, a factor that has clearly impacted on the trend of earnings. During the quarter, the average price of NSBK was 9 per cent lower in SEK than in the same period last year. However, prices in USD have been rising for some months. The average price in the second quarter was slightly higher than in the first, and this trend has remained early in the third quarter. A weaker dollar is also weighing on the Group’s earnings compared to last year. During the second quarter, the average USD exchange rate was 2 per cent lower than in the same period in the preceding year. Since the Brexit vote in late June, the exchange rate has strengthened and, in addition to the rising pulp price, it is clear that the dollar exchange rate is also moving in the right direction at the start of the third quarter. Thanks to the high production volume during the quarter, we have been able to build up inventories when preparing for the maintenance shutdowns in the autumn, in order to optimise deliveries to our customers during the autumn.   Focus on Agenda 500 During the quarter, we continued our intensive effort to develop our mills within the framework of Agenda 500. The major share of investments conducted in 2016 will become operational during the annual maintenance shutdowns in the autumn. These investments will expand capacity at both mills, above all in the run-up to 2017. We have also acquired a new biomass boiler for Rottneros. The procurement process was completed in June and the new boiler, which is to be commissioned at mid-year 2017, will deliver major energy and environmental gains. As an important step in developing Rottneros to meet the future, we conducted several training activities during the quarter in order to further upgrade our skills and expertise. Providing skilled employees with the opportunity to develop within the Group is important in enabling us to consolidate Rottneros’ world-leading position in specialist pulp.   New President and CEO On 1 September, I will hand over as President and CEO to Lennart Eberleh, an experienced and competent industry colleague. I am looking forward to playing a part, as a Board member, in driving Rottneros forward. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all you employees, customers, suppliers, owners, Board of Directors and other stakeholders for the support and help I have received during my time as interim CEO in continuing to build, with you, a successful Rottneros.   Per Lundeen Chief Executive Officer and President   (For the complete interim report see attached file)   For more information, please visit. www.rottneros.com   This information is information that Rottneros AB is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation and the Securities Markets Act. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact person set out below, at 8.00 a.m. on 29 August 2016. A Swedish and an English version of this report have been drawn up. The Swedish version shall prevail in the event of differences between the two.   For more information, please contact: Krister Lindgren, acting CFO of Rottneros AB, +46 72 715 06 50

Interview with Steve Mallyon Managing Director of Riversdale Resources Limited: Australian-Canadian Hard Coking Coal Exploration and Development Company
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Riversdale Resources Limited is an Australian-Canadian hard coking coal exploration and development company that owns the Grassy Mountain project in Southern Alberta, Canada. Grassy Mountain is a large, very long-life, and low-cost project that came with the package of excellent work on exploration, coal quality assessment and infrastructure. Riversdale is run by an experienced crew of people that all came from majors, which enables the company to move quickly and efficiently. We learned from Steve Mallyon, Managing Director of Riversdale, that they started the permitting process last November, and hope to start building Grassy Mountain in early 2018 and to commission the project in mid-2019, producing 4.5 million Metric tonnes within the first 20 months. The company has recently concluded the Optimization Study of the Grassy Mountain project, that was largely focused on lowering further the cost of the project, reducing its environmental footprint, as well as a quicker ramp up to full production. Riversdale has had a long good relationship with the Piikani First Nation and the other First Nations and with the community. According to Mr. Mallyon, Riversdale Resources is the only independent mid-vol hard-coking coal company that can offer the steelmakers a large long term supply alternative to the majors.

Interview with Christian Easterday, Managing Director of Hot Chili (ASX: HCH): High Grade Gold Being Added to One of the World’s Lowest Capital Intensity Large Scale New Copper Developments. Located within the Iron Oxide/Copper-Gold Belt of Chile
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Hot Chili Ltd. (ASX: HCH) is an Australian company, focused on its very large-scale Productora copper porphyry deposit, located within the iron oxide/copper-gold belt of Chile 15km south of the town of Vallenar in Chile’s Region III. Productora is a very infrastructure-rich project, standing out as one of the lowest capital intensity large scale new copper projects to be developed. We learned from Christian Easterday, Managing Director of Hot Chili, that the company is fast-tracking a very low cost, rapid assessment of a high-grade gold deposit, recently discovered in the southern extent of Productora. Next steps for Hot Chili will be advancing Productora to a decision to mine, while in parallel, making preparations towards the first major drilling program to be directed over what appears to represent approximately 1 billion tons of additional growth potential in the main copper-gold asset. According to Mr. Easterday, Hot Chili is a very consolidated company, has very strong funding support and is partnered with CAP Mineria, one of Chile's largest resource majors. The company has a very strong news flow lined up for the coming 6 to 12 months. Productora is an asset that will be at the front of the queue of the next wave of copper price escalation. Most importantly for investors- it is the emergence of a very robust looking high grade gold deposit which looks likely to be turning heads- with the drill rods due to start turning soon also.

Interview with Lee Barker, President and CEO of Sparton Resources (TSX.V: SRI): Completed Commissioning of the Zhangbei Project's 8 Megawatt Hour Vanadium Flow Battery
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

Sparton Resources Inc. (TSX.V: SRI) completed commissioning of the Zhangbei Project's 8 Megawatt Hour Vanadium Flow Battery earlier this year and its client recently received payment of approximately $C3.2 million from the battery's owner, State Grid North China Company. The ongoing maintenance program revenue over the next 3 years will also provide cash flow. These payments will accrue to Sparton’s operating subsidiary company in China. According to Lee Barker, President and CEO of Sparton Resources, the vanadium flow battery is much better than lithium for large scale energy storage: they can go 100,000 cycles of fully charging and discharging, they don't lose charge while being idle, they operate in cold temperatures and warm temperatures, they don't have to be air-conditioned in hot environments, they are not flammable, better for computer systems backup, because the electricity in the vanadium battery can be discharged almost instantaneously, for large-scale storage, these batteries are about 1/3 the cost of a similar sized lithium battery, when you factor in the life of the battery over time; and at the end of their life, they are fully recyclable. There is an incredible market for large energy storage all over the world. Sparton also has access to clean and pure primary vanadium deposits in China that they believe will be developed. They are currently in the process of negotiating with various potential strategic partners to acquire the battery manufacturer and develop these deposits. This way they could potentially build a company with the source for the raw material that can make the vanadium flow batteries, and get a cost benefit from that and make it more competitive in the marketplace.
