Pahtavaara – Mining

In the first five years of operation over 2 million tonnes of ore was mined from three open pits but from 2006 to 2014 mining was from underground with ramp access.

There has been some 35km of underground 5m x 5m tunnelling developed since operations commenced. Mining was previously undertaken by contractor using long hole stoping methods.
