A mine with a long history

In 2020 Eurobattery Minerals acquired the Hautalampi Mine. When the acquisition took place, significant pre-production development was completed. Processing methods have been investigated and high-value concentrates have been produced. Further process test work by Outotec Oyj has demonstrated that a combined nickel-cobalt concentrate can be leached and chemicals suitable for battery industry can be produced.

The mineral deposit contains nickel and cobalt sulphide minerals and copper sulphide minerals with gold and silver by-products. Much of the critical infrastructure is still in place, such as the high voltage power line, concrete foundations for the process plant, roads and the town itself (population 7,700).
