11th Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining Conference (FEM 2017)

Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining (FEM 2017)


FEM Conference, founded in 1998, is one of the largest and most significant mineral industry events in Europe. FEM brings together exploration and mining industry experts and leaders worldwide. We are expecting again over 1000 participants.

Our goal is to advance and develop business by sharing current ideas and insights. We aim to help building connections and prompting mineral industry globally.

FEM has a strong focus on exploration and mining development in Fennoscandia. Over the years, we have provided a comprehensive picture of what is happening in mineral industry today and in the near future in Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Northwestern Russia.

Who should attend?
FEM gives an opportunity for people from exploration, mining, academia, investors, governments, geological surveys, and the service sector to meet and network in pleasant surroundings. The biannual event includes world-class presentations by invited speakers, pre-conference short courses, a trade show, and post-conference excursions.

Companies already operating or interested in operating in Fennoscandia consider the FEM conference as an essential event in which marketing, networking and making new contacts is easy and profitable. The objectives of the conference include increasing awareness of the practical aspects of operating in the area and offering information about the mineral resources in this part of the world. More information available on  the conference website .

In 2017 Finland is celebrating its 100 years as an independent nation and at the same time Canada, since many years a strong sponsor of FEM, is celebrating 150 years as a nation. This together with the fact that Finland is entering the chairmanship of the Arctic council will make the FEM 2017 very special.
