Welcome to FEM 2021 Online event

 

The 13th Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining Conference (FEM 2021) will be organized as a condensed online event without a trade show, short courses and excursions.

Do you want to know what’s hot in Fennoscandia – the current players and upcoming commodities? In addition, we bring keynote talks by Sarah-Jane Barnes and Richard Goldfarb, globally known experts on nickel and gold. Other presentations cover for example current situation on mining acts in Nordic countries, and Rupert Resources’ world-class Ikkari gold discovery.

Our programme consists of four online events. We have published the programme with speakers and opened the free-of-charge registration.

We would like to warmly thank all our speakers for their support in sharing the FEM spirit virtually. Our special thanks go to our sponsors Anglo American (Sakatti Mining Oy), Agnico Eagle Finland Oy, Boliden, and to our cooperation partner the Finnish Mining Association (FinnMin).

FEM 2023

The 14th Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM 2023), will take place from 31 October to 2 November 2023 in Levi, Lapland, Finland.

The biannual FEM, founded in 1998, brings together over thousand exploration and mining industry leaders, experts and researchers from over 30 countries.

FEM highlights exploration and mining in Fennoscandia. In addition to Nordic experts, the conference will feature many international speakers, including top names, corporate management in the field, researchers and specialists from e.g. Canada and Australia.

Many mining and exploration events concentrate on mining technology and processing industry. The Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM), on the other hand, has from the very beginning focused mainly on exploration and mine development. Therefore FEM invites speakers from exploration and mining companies, research institutes, academia, authorities and geological surveys. All presentations are by invitation only (no open call for abstracts).
