SMA Mineral Oy has limestone mines in Tornio and Pieksämäki and a quartz mine in Tornio. The company also began exploration in 2015. SMA Mineral AB is the parent company and is domiciled in Filipstad in Sweden. The company is conducting operations at 30 locations in Europe, in seven countries. In Finland, SMA Mineral Oy excavates limestone and manufactures limestone based products at the Kalkkimaa and Loukolampi limestone product factories. Mining activities comprise strip mining sites and limestone factories, in which rock, depending on the product, is either crushed, sifted, ground and sacked. In addition to mining, the company also manufactures burned and slaked lime, which is not addressed by this report.
Kalkkimaa, the largest dolomite deposit in the Nordic countries, began its operations as early as during the 16th century. Provided that the current excavation volumes remain unchanged, the raw material will last for 500 years. Excavation at the dolomite deposit in Ankele began in the 1950s. At the Ristimaa quarry, quartz has been excavated since 1992.
