Mining Finland is an organization gathering together Finnish mining, exploration and mining technology companies to promote direct investments to Finland, export of Finnish mining technology and international networking. Through Mining Finland our stakeholders have straight access to different actors in Finnish mining and downstream industry cluster. Mining Finland arranges for its member companies networking and match making events all over the world.

Finland is a mining country with hundreds years of history. Close operation between mining companies like Outokumpu and Rautaruukki, technology companies like Outotec, Metso, Normet and Sandvik, and research organizations like Geological Survey of Finland and VTT together with government funding agencies have created good platform for technology innovation and development in the country. This excellent research and development infrastructure does not only confine to Finland. Close cooperation with other Nordic countries makes the area a leading hub in green and sustainable mining development.

Most of the land area of Nordic countries belongs to Fennoscandian shield, having more than one hundred operating mines, tens of advance projects and exploration targets and huge potential for undiscovered resources. Based on recent comparative studies between Finnish mineralization zones and similar global formations, it is shown that Finland has significant potential for new discoveries and mine development, particularly of Au, base metals, Pt, Pd and some strategic metals like Li.

Finnish favorable mining investment environment is based on strong infrastructure with extensive road, rail, port and data networks covering whole Finland, competitive energy and energy infrastructure, stable political and social environment supported by predictable, transparent and long term mining policies.
