SPT shows its novelties for directional survey at the 14th edition of FEM
- The event will take place from October 31 to November 2, 2023 at the Event Centre Levi Summit (Finlandia).
- Stockholm Precision Tools will be located at booth C7.
Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM) seeks to be a focal point where critical topics such as mineral resource exploration, application of advanced technologies in mining, and operational self-sufficiency will be discussed.
Exploration establishes the basis for the identification of profitable deposits, while modern mining technology promotes a more efficient and safe operation.
Finally, self-sufficiency invites us to consider how mining operations can be more sustainable and less dependent on external factors.
Reasons to attend FEM
- Exceptional networking opportunities and face-to-face meetings with key players and influencers will be presented by speakers from exploration and mining companies, research institutes, universities, and geological surveys. .
- Attendees will gain a wealth of information on exploration and mining, economic geology, environmental and social aspects, permitting and investment.
- There will be high-level speakers and engaging presentations, short courses, and mine tours.
The opportunities and challenges in the mining sector are growing, and FEM’s goal is to advance and develop the business by sharing ideas and insights, creating global connections and promoting the mineral industry.
SPT will be at FEM booth C7 to showcase its cutting-edge solutions.
The SPT team will share a booth with its distribution partner Levanto Oy, and will offer an augmented reality experience in which they will show the operation and advantages of using their innovative tools.
On this occasion they will be presented:
Polestar Aligner: designed to align gyroscopic equipment at extreme latitudes.
Despite its small size, it is robust and in less than 5 minutes provides ultra-precise alignment.
Its ability to provide real-time azimuth and inclination data is crucial for quick and informed decision making in critical operations. Its portable and rugged design makes it a reliable choice for a variety of industrial applications.
CoreMaster™ is an advanced digital core orientation system used for detailed characterization of subsurface geological structures.
It is multi-diameter, eliminating the need for additional tools.
One of its major contributions is to determine the original orientation of rock samples prior to extraction, bringing critical value to geological research.
In addition, its Bluetooth® connectivity enables fast and efficient data extraction without disassembling components, speeding up coring operations.
GyroMaster™ is a leading instrument in the mineral exploration industry, designed to accurately and continuously measure the trajectory of vertical boreholes.
It utilizes advanced Navibore™, solid-state gyroscope technology, which, together with its intuitive software, ensures maximum measurement accuracy.
It stands out as the fastest and most accurate true north finder, enabling high-speed measurements without stopping and reducing downtime.
Mining in Finland
Finland is a country with a long mining tradition and is among the world leaders in sustainable mining. In recent years, the Finnish government has increased massive mining exploration due to rising demand.
One of the most coveted resources in Finland is gold, and gold mines have come to the fore in the Lapland region.
Mining companies have invested in state-of-the-art technology and advanced exploration methods to identify high-quality gold deposits.
SPT’s GyroMaster can help in the task of identifying high-grade gold deposits in Lapland’s gold mines, as it is the most advanced solid-state gyroscope in the mining industry.
Finland has tightened its mining legislation to give greater control to local residents in the permitting of new mining areas.
Mining activity relevant to critical raw materials is concentrated in Asia, Oceania and South America, but Finland and Sweden could help solve the EU’s deficit in these raw materials.
The Mining Association of Finland (FinnMinn) has proposed 27 reforms, including reducing the permitting process, to speed up the process from the exploration phase to the start of commercial mining.
Among the main characteristics of mining in Finland we can highlight:
In addition to gold, Finland is home to a variety of other valuable minerals.
The main minerals currently mined in Finland include the metals chromium, nickel, copper, zinc and platinum, apatite phosphate, calcite and lithium.
These minerals are essential in the production of batteries for electric vehicles and in the clean energy industry, making Finland a key player in the global supply chain.
Commitment to Sustainability
One of the hallmarks of the Finnish mining industry is its strong commitment to sustainability.
The country has implemented stringent environmental and safety regulations to ensure that exploration and mining are conducted in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner. This has led to the adoption of clean mining practices and proper waste management.
Technology also plays a key role in Finland’s mining industry. Finnish companies have developed advanced solutions, from state-of-the-art drilling equipment to data management systems that optimize mining operations.
This innovation has increased the industry’s efficiency and productivity.
Exploration and mining in Finland have a promising future. Global demand for minerals and metals continues to rise, especially in the context of the transition to green energy and electric mobility.
Finland is well positioned to play a vital role in meeting this demand, leveraging its rich resource base and focus on sustainability.
In short, Finland has become an attractive destination for exploration and mining, thanks to its geological wealth, commitment to sustainability and technological innovation.
As the world continues to rely on essential minerals, Finland emerges as a leader in the responsible extraction of these resources, contributing to economic development and a more sustainable future.
