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.
Finland offers the exploration industry a favorable investment and operating environment with significant potential for new discoveries as many commodities still are highly underexplored. Present activity is concentrated in gold, platinum group metals, base metals, diamonds and industrial minerals. Finland has excellent geological databases, good infrastructure and readily available exploration services. These factors make operating in Finland attractive and cost effective.
