In this interview, Firesteel Resources (TSX: V.FTR) CEO Michael Hepworth discusses recent activities at The Laiva deposit located in Raahe, Finland (one of the largest gold resources in the region), and the future direction of the project.
The mine is a conventional open pit mine with 2 pits. All mining infrastructure currently in place, the mine is planed to re-open in 2018. With a fully built, fully financed, fully permitted past producing gold mine in Finland, and a economically robust PEA - the full potential is yet to be realized.
In addition, Finland was declared as World’s 6th best country for property rights. (Forbes Dec 2016), ahead of Canada and USA. Finland has a 20% Corporate Tax rate and gold producers pay 0.15% Royalty.
