1 Joensuu Region Joensuu Regional Development Company JOSEK Ltd The ore and stone mining industry invest in a growing market.

2 Invest in the growing mining industry Operators in the ore and stone mining industry, companies processing stone and soil material, contractors, machine and equipment manufacturers, and consulting and research institutions are well established and have steadily thriving and growing operations in the Joensuu region. Geological natural resources will continue to make a significant contribution to the city s welfare. Over a hundred years ago, a lump of copper ore was discovered during the dredging of the Kivisalmi water passage in Rääkkylä. This led to the discovery of an ore deposit in Outokumpu in 1910, which provided a basis for the Finnish mining industry. The ore gave rise to two publicly quoted companies, Outokumpu Oyj and Outotec Oyj, and created several thousand jobs in the mining technology industry. By the 2000s, the industry had established steady growth in the region. In addition to several mining and extraction projects, the region has a growth cluster of national and international companies. It is reasonable to believe that the soil and ore resources and stone expertise of the region show great potential for future success stories. Is your company ready to invest in the new upswing of the mining industry in the Joensuu region? The Joensuu region has charm. Contact us to learn more!

3 Ore and stone mining industry continues to grow and develop Mining is a high-technology industry with excellent prospects. The Joensuu region has expertise, training, operational premises, and highly motivated personnel, making it an excellent location for your company. The ores found in the region include tin, uranium, iron, copper, cobalt, and gold. Also soapstone, natural stone, talcum are found and mined in the area. The Talvivaara nickel mine is also located nearby. Soapstone provides the basis for growth in the fireplace market The excavation of leopard carving soapstone and soapstone is centralized in Polvijärvi and Juuka. The attraction of soapstone as a construction stone and material in fireplaces has facilitated the formation of the largest expertise cluster of heat reserving fireplace manufacturers in Europe. Tulikivi Oyj and Vuoleri Oy are the leading manufacturers of soapstone fireplaces in Finland. Soapstone has many other uses too. Hukka Design Oy in Tuupovaara manufactures popular business gifts made of soapstone including products for sauna, cooking, and wellbeing. Gold and copper The Vuonos factory of Mondo Minerals B.V., Finnish branch, quarries the talcum and exports it abroad via the deep-water channel. The Kylylahti Copper Oy mine focuses on quarrying, crushing, and enriching copper and cobalt. The Swedish mining company Endomines Oy has invested 20 million euros in establishing the Pampalo gold mine in Ilomantsi. Now the mine produces kilos of gold per year, and it is expected to continue its profitable business for many years to come. The Institute of Geology has a mineral technology research laboratory in Outokumpu. The town is also home to Outotec Turula Oy and Firotec Oy, both experts in the metal industry that deliver technical equipment to the mining sector. Aggregate-based products create success Lakan Betoni Oy specializes in products used in aggregate-based construction. Blocks, elements, dry products, and ready-mixed concrete are the basis of the company s success. The company also manufactures paving slabs, wall stones, and special products for outdoor construction. Pielisen Betoni Oy manufactures wall elements and ready-mixed concrete for the needs of the construction industry in its factory that was completed in Natural stone pleases the eye Liperi has slate stone deposits, which is a beautiful natural stone that looks equally good in indoor and outdoor use. For five decades, Viinijärven Kivi Oy has processed the dark slate stone for construction companies and outdoor builders. In Joensuu, designers have truly mastered the art and science of working with stone, and have produced new innovations such as outdoor kitchens for summer use and durable benches for urban areas.

4 Earthmoving as contract work The stone and mining industry requires well-functioning logistics, earthmoving, and contracting services. Soil excavation, an area that is growing continuously, has created a chain of true contracting experts in the Joensuu region. Reliable contractors The contracting business is very diverse and competitive in the region including a comprehensive range of earth construction, machinery rental, and logistics services. Hartikainen Oy is a significant actor in the contracting service sector on a national scale. It offers earth construction services all over Finland and has special expertise in area structures and mass handling relating to mining operations, and in the construction of industrial foundations and infrastructure. Skilled workforce for the needsof the mining industry The North Karelia Municipal Education and Training Consortium s study programme in the excavation industry trains professionals in the field. The graduates have knowledge and skills in the industrial production of stone products, industrial automations and production processes, production techniques, installation of construction and landscaping stones, rock shaping, renovation, and excavation.
