Mineral resources and Exploration

Finland is a European hub for mineral exploration and mine development. Geoscientific base data over Finland is probably the best in the world. GTK promotes sustainable use of rock and mineral resources. Our work forms the basis for long-term investment by industries and society in the mineral and energy sectors to assure stable employment and prosperity. GTK information and expert services are relied on at both the national and international level.

Mining industry

Nickel, zinc, copper, chrome and gold form Finland's most significant metal mineral resources. The demand for metallic minerals continues to increase and Finland’s bedrock has the potential to meet the increasing demand.

Broadly speaking, industrial minerals include all minerals and rocks that have industrial use, excluding metallic minerals, mineral fuels and jewels. Usability of industrial minerals is based on their physical or chemical properties, and they are used in manufacturing products that are often necessary and that we use every day.

GTK has competence and knowledge for starting a productive and eco-efficient business.
