DAYTON, Ohio, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Nord Resources Corporation (NYSE: NRD) announced today that it has completed the sale of 2,000,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock to MIL (Investments) S.A., a Luxembourg company owned by Mr. Jean-Raymond Boulle, for a price of $10,000,000 ($5.00 per share). Including these shares, MIL owns 6,000,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock, representing 27.5% of the shares presently issued and outstanding.

Dr. Edgar F. Cruft, Chairman of the Company, commented, "The cash provided from this transaction will further strengthen Nord's ability to proceed with its 50% share of the funding necessary to reestablish the SRL rutile operations in Sierra Leone. We are pleased that Mr. Boulle continues to be encouraged by the progress being made with SRL, as is evidenced by this additional investment in the Company."

Representatives of the Company, its 50% partner in SRL (Consolidated Rutile Limited) and SRL have been discussing various topics with SRL's lenders, including an extension of the forbearance on debt payments beyond January 1, 1997, a restructuring of the terms of the existing indebtedness and the availability of additional funding from the lenders in conjunction with reopening the mine. The Company and its 50% partner in SRL are encouraged that necessary steps can be completed to enable SRL to begin rehabilitation of its mining facilities by mid-1997, with resumption of production targeted for late 1997 or early 1998.
