Pahtavaara – Mining

In the first five years of operation over 2 million tonnes of ore was mined from three open pits but since 2006 mining has been from underground with ramp access.

There has been some 30km of 5m x 5m underground development since mining commenced. Historically mining has been by contractor using long hole stopping methods.
