Supplementary consultation on new environmental permit

Kaunis Iron AB is planning to apply for a completely new permit according to the Environmental Code for extraction from the iron ore deposits Tapuli, Palotieva and 

Sahavaara and for processing the ore therefrom in Kaunisvaara concentration plant in Pajala Municipality.


During spring 2019, Kaunis Iron began a detailed study of alternative designs for the tailings reservoir, which means that the area of the tailings reservoir will be allowed to grow, in this way to ensure that sufficient storage volume is reached. The study also covers water management and the design and location of the clearing basin. Since the alternative designs of the tailings reservoir and water management, which are currently being investigated, have not been presented or described within the framework of the previous consultations, a supplementary consultation is now to be held.


In the enclosed consultation documents, the investigated alternatives regarding the tailings reservoir and clearing basin are described, as well as the principal effects on the surroundings which the different alternatives are foreseen to give rise to.


Views on the subject can be submitted in writing no later than 3 May 2019.
