May 27-June 11Title: Geology and Mineral Deposits of Finland
Location: Finland
Website:

Finland is the 7th largest European country, but ranks as one of the most important in terms of mining. It produces a variety of industrial, base, and precious-metals commodities. Deposit types include, but are not limited to, volcanogenic massive sulfide, Kiruna-type apatite-iron, orogenic Au, epigenetic Cu-Au, diamond, mafic/ultramafic-hosted Cr, Ni, PGE, and banded iron formation types. With such diverse geology concentrated in a small compact peninsula, Finland provides a great opportunity for both students and industry persons alike to be exposed to multiple deposit types along with their associated mining, milling, and in some cases exploration techniques.
