GeoPool is managing exploration licenses in Sweden, Finland and Norway. We are familiar with the mining acts and authorities in each of the countries. Very important partners in exploration projects are the landowners and the local communities - These must be involved in the project. With a good relation to the locals, exploration projects can advance smoothly. Good communication with the governmental sector will allow application processes to progress without unnecessary delays.
