      Cliffs announces results of shareholders meeting

      Cliffs Natural Resources has announced the re-election of five directors as well as the election of six new directors to the board.

      Based on the preliminary report of the Inspector of Election, IVS Associates, Inc., that Mark Gaumond, Gary Halverson, Janice Henry, Richard Riederer and Timothy Sullivan have been re-elected. The report also states they will be joined by newly elected directors Lourenco Goncalves, Robert Fisher, Jr., Joseph Rutkowski, James Sawyer, Gabriel Stoliar and Douglas Taylor.

      Since the Cliffs Board has chosen not to contest the preliminary report, these results will be final once they are certified by the inspector of elections.

      All other proposals submitted for a vote at the Annual General Meeting were approved. The Cliffs' Board will elect a new Chairman as soon as feasible.
