            Nyrstar : Nyrstar announces Organisational Restructure

Regulated Information

24 June 2013

Today Nyrstar announced an organisational restructure creating three  distinct 
business segments: Mining, Metals Processing and Marketing, Sourcing &  Sales, 
ensuring  that  the  organisational  structure  is  better  aligned  with  the 
Company's growing metals and mining business.

The restructure results  in an  increased management committee,  from five  to 
seven people. In addition  to the Company's  Chief Executive Officer,  Roland 
Junck, the new management committee will comprise:

Heinz Eigner, Chief Financial Officer, will continue his financial stewardship
of the  company and  will continue  to be  responsible for  business  systems, 
whilst  also  assuming  responsibility  for  group  procurement  and  business 

Michael Morley, Chief Corporate and  Development Officer, will continue to  be 
responsible for  strategy,  mergers and  acquisitions,  business  integration, 
investor relations and communications,  legal and company secretariat,  whilst 
also assuming responsibility  for the Port  Pirie redevelopment and  strategic 
business excellence.

Graham Buttenshaw,  Senior Vice  President,  Mining, currently  Group  General 
Manager, Mining - Latin America,  will assume responsibility for leading  the 
Company's  global  mining  operations.  Mr.  Buttenshaw  has  over  30  years' 
experience in  the  global  mining  industry  working  in  countries  such  as 
Australia, Peru  and Ghana  in a  number of  senior roles  with global  mining 
houses such as BHP Billiton and global mining contractors such as Redpath.

Bob Katsiouleris,  Senior  Vice  President,  Marketing,  Sourcing  and  Sales, 
currently  Group  General  Manager,  Commercial  Operations,  will  lead   the 
Company's raw materials strategy, marketing and sales of finished products and
trading. Prior to joining  Nyrstar in January 2013,  Mr. Katsiouleris was  the 
Chief Commercial Officer for Rio Tinto Minerals and brings more than 20 years
of experience in industrial minerals and metals sales, marketing, operations,
processing, finance and purchasing.

Russell Murphy, Chief  Human Resources, Safety  and Environment Officer,  will 
continue  lead  the  Company's   human  resources,  safety  and   environment 
functions, whilst  also  assuming  responsibility for  the  Company's  quality 
assurance functions.

Mr Morley will also act as Senior Vice President, Metals Processing,  assuming 
responsibility for the  Company's global metals  processing operations, on  an 
interim basis, pending an appointment following a global recruitment program.

As a consequence of  the restructure Greg  McMillan, Chief Operating  Officer, 
will leave the Company. He will remain in an advisory role to the  management 
committee for the next three months to ensure an orderly transition to the new

Roland  Junck,  Chief  Executive  Officer,   said  "Our  business  has   grown 
significantly over the past five years from a pure smelting business with  six 
operating sites  to an  integrated  mining and  metals business  with  fifteen 
operating sites and a global commercial function. We have now reached a  point 
in the  strategic  journey of  the  company, where  it  is important  for  our 
continued growth, that we create direct  lines of sight within the  management 
committee for each  of our  three core  value drivers:  namely Mining,  Metals 
Processing and Marketing, Sourcing & Sales.

On behalf of the Board and the management committee I take this opportunity to
thank Greg McMillan  for his  tremendous contribution since  the formation  of 
Nyrstar. We wish him the very best for the future."
