The mining seminar and exhibition in Kajaani October 18, 2012 gave new insights about the booming mining industry in Scandinavian countries. Sotkamo Silver Oy is planning to open a silver mine in Taivaljarvi, Sotkamo.
Environmental permit is expected in Autumn 2012. Approximately 20 million Euros has been spent on project development already. Production is planned to start at the end of 2013 or in early 2014.
Sandvik is active at the Talvivaara mine in Sotkamo. I did have a chat with people responsible for the maintenance of their equipments.
