A metals company, with significant exploration projects in mining, smelting and metals recycling, has announced major expansions plans for one of the only gold smelters in western Europe.

Boliden announced in a statement this week that it will invest around EUR 150 million into the expansion of its Kevitsa copper-nickel mine and Harjavalta copper-nickel smelter, located in Finland.

“A few years ago, we decided to invest in the copper production at Harjavalta and revise our nickel strategy. The Kevitsa copper-nickel mine was acquired in 2016 and is now Harjavalta’s most important concentrate supplier. Today’s investment decision should be viewed as part of the development of Boliden’s overall operations in Finland,” says Lennart Evrell, President & CEO.
