finnish_diggerRe: New law bans professional placer mining in Finland
You can find the gold area in Google earth:
let GE find "Lemmenjoki", go 22km to the west, go 7km south.
If you look very carefully, you see a river flowing first from north to south and then turning west, has been operated with shovel since 50's, with modern machines from 80's. This is the most producing river.
You can also find a brief info in English on our web page:

Ok, been thinking about it, that means we have 9 years to work it out, :doublethumbsup:.

Does the river freeze up during winter, or how long can you dig during the year,

I am having a look on Google earth, to see what we can see.

Would you please post any pics you might have,

Brief history of Finnish gold mining:
- Lemmenjoki gold fields were discovered 1949, first machine starting 1951
- near by national park was expanded over the gold fields in 1971, politicians promised that gold mining may continue without any restrictions
- another law was changed 1991 so that new claims for machine operations were no more possible, only 'old' claims were allowed to continue
- now (2011) all machine operations are put to an end after 9 years transition period in Lemmenjoki National Park (http://www.luontoon.fi/page.asp?Section=5076)
- we have about 25 machine operations in Lemmenjoki, producing ~ 25kg annually, the rest of the country produces about 5 kg
- the total number of placer claims in Finland is about 270, 80% of which are dig with shovel

The actual background of banning machines there is fundamental: no machines in national park. However they accused us also on environmental issues in the beginning.

Hey Finnish Digger,

Could you please tell us what the greenies won with, any info would be good for all placer and alluvial mining all over the world, in the greenie fight back, ,

Also, I would suggest the next 9 years would be an excellent opportunity to prove and improve all operations / methods, are or will be in fact, environmentally insignificant , and change the law back to mining in 9 years, faster mining , environmentally " insignificant ", also in many previously mined areas all over the world, these or this type of mining will remove toxic heavy metals in very significant amounts,

Also, Please explain, is " Lemmenjoki " a big percentage of " Digging with machines " in the whole country, ???.

Sorry gotta post, dredger.

:devil:

Two things: we who have our mining rights still somewhat intact MUST not be complacent and allow those rights to be abrogated. Second, we can hope that down the line lawmakers will be in a position and of a mindset to overturn the mining negative laws.
finnish_diggerRe: New law bans professional placer mining in Finland
Final verdict last week: The new law shall take place first of July this year. Digging with machines in Lemmenjoki shall be banned after 9 years transition period. No compensation paid. Greenies won.
Anyone got a good place for me to take a new start? :wink:

Wow Finnish-digger--you're in a bad way--get on to it with the writing and the phoning/texting/emails/whatever it takes. It's certain that it will stop if nobody raises a ruckus. However, it may end anyway if your elected officials don't care about re-election, or maybe it's the bureaucrats that are running the politicians around by the nose. If that's the case--you've been given some excellent ideas by others in earlier replies. So, get your mining buddies stirred up like a hornet's nest and start stirring up the politicians too!

All the best,

Lanny
