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.

Mineral technology

The GTK Mineral Processing Laboratory, located in Outokumpu, is specialised in the study of ore processing and the development of enrichment technologies in cooperation with the mining industry, equipment suppliers and research institutes. The research includes everything from mineralogical research and laboratory-scale enrichment tests to continuous test runs at the pilot-scale, making the laboratory unique even at the international level. We offer tailored research services related to enrichment technologies for the mining industry, providing customers with all services related to ore enrichment in one place. Our research services aim to create eco-efficient processes that improve the competitiveness of the mining industry and lead to environmentally friendly and sustainable use of mineral resources.
