Scandinavian Minerals Profile
Scandinavian Minerals Limited ("Scandinavian Minerals"), formerly named Scandinavian Gold Limited, is a Canadian public company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol SGL.  Its corporate objective is the exploration and development of base and precious metal properties in northern Europe, with emphasis on Finland. 

Scandinavian Mineral's current focus is the development of the Kevitsa nickel-copper-PGE (Platinum Group Elements) project in northern Finland. 

Kevitsa nickel-copper-PGE 

One of the largest mineral discoveries in Finland's history, the development-stage Kevitsa property hosts a measured and indicated resource of 287 million tons at a 0.1% nickel cutoff, together with a further 544 million ton inferred resource.  Kevitsa is one of the world’s major undeveloped nickel sulphide deposits and is situated in an area of excellent infrastructure. 

In April 2007, Scandinavian Minerals announced the commencement of its Feasibility Study for the Kevitsa project. The Study is based on an open pit mining operation, mining approximately 4.5 million tons of ore per year, with production of smelter-grade nickel and copper concentrates. The Study is expected to take approximately 12 months to complete.
