Oktober 2nd, 2014 "Boliden is now applying with the Swedish Mining Inspectorate (Bergsstaten) for starting a new mine in Laver outside Älvsbyn, Norrbotten. It’s expected that the mine will generate 700 new jobs when it is fully operational. There will be 36 million metric tonnes of ore broken annually. The ore contains copper, gold and silver and total reserves are estimated to be one billion metric tonnes. The mine will become the about the same size as Boliden’s current open pit mine in Aitik. The application for a mining concession that Boliden now submitted to the Mining Inspectorate is one of two required permits for a mine. In the next step there is also an environmental permit required. The entire licensing process is expected to take approximately two to three years. And before a mine could be in operation, it probably comes closer to ten years." Watching this development with interest too.
