By Wolfgang Derek Maier, Raimo Lahtinen, Hugh O'Brien

Mineral Deposits of Finland is the single up to date and inclusive reference on hand that totally captures the scope of Finland’s mineral deposits and their monetary strength. Finland hosts Europe’s such a lot mature rocks and big cratonic blocks, analogous to western Australia and Southern Africa, that are the main mineralized terrains on the earth.

Authored via the world’s most appropriate specialists on Finnish mineral exploration and mining, Mineral Deposits of Finland deals an intensive precis of the mineral deposits and their petrogenesis, assisting readers to map, discover, and determine Finland’s renewed strength for mineral exploration and extraction.

  • Presents a completely inclusive catalogue of Finland’s mineral deposits and their financial potential
  • Features full-color figures, illustrations, operating examples and images to help the reader in conserving key techniques to underscore significant advances within the exploration of Finland’s mineral resources
  • Offers concise bankruptcy summaries authored via leaders in geological examine, which supply available overviews of deposit classes

Advances in High-Pressure Techniques for Geophysical Applications

High-pressure mineral physics is a box that's strongly pushed via the advance of latest know-how. Fifty years in the past, whilst experimentally attainable pressures have been constrained to simply 25 GPa, little was once learn about the mineralogy of the Earth's reduce mantle. Silicate perovskite, the most probably dominant mineral of the deep Earth, used to be pointed out in basic terms whilst the high-pressure innovations broke the strain barrier of 25 GPa in Nineteen Seventies.

The geological departments of the Universities of Oulu, Helsinki, Turku, and Åbo Akademi, as well as the Helsinki University of Technology, had research projects financed by this fund. The projects produced results that have been useful in planning and carrying out successful exploration programs in different organizations, and in two cases (Orijärvi and Taivaljärvi) the projects have directly contributed to the discovery of ore deposits. The projects have also contributed to the training of exploration geologists, who have subsequently taken responsibility for exploration in the Geological Survey and mining enterprises.

As a result of intensive exploration, including low-altitude airborne magnetic surveys, the Laurinoja open cut mine was established in 1982 in the Hannukainen ore field (Hiltunen, 1982). The Otanmäki Company merged into Rautaruukki Oy in 1969. Already in 1959 an exploration office was opened in Rovaniemi, and the exploration operations were concentrated in northern Finland. From there the staff in charge of ore exploration moved in 1966 to Oulu, where the head office of the Rautaruukki Oy was later transferred.
