Visit to Kemi mine

Kemi mine (the only chromite mine within EU) is a part of most integrated stainless steel production chain in combination with Outokumpu stainless oy at Tornio. Penetrated as of now to 1000 meter depth,  the ore deposit extends to even four kilometers. Production capacity is around 2.4 million tonnes of chrome ore per year.

A visit to this mine (27th March,2018) was a great experience. The tunnels, machines, offices at depths of 500 meters under the ground are quite a sight to witness. The mine also hosted a metal band concert long back.

The picture is taken at a depth of 1000 meters include Eshwar Ramasetti, Esa Puukko and Satish Kolli.
