Awards in 2017


Mr. Jan Moström, the recipient of the eight Fennoscandian Mining Award 

Mr. Moström has had an exceptional career in the Swedish mining industry. He started out as a miner in Kristineberg and returned to Boliden to work as a mining engineer after completing a mining course in Bergskolan, Filipstad. In the 1990's, he became a successful mine manager in several mines in the Boliden Area.
 

In 2001, Mr. Moström was appointed as the General Manager for the Boliden Area and became President of Boliden Mines in 2005. In this position, he was the major driver behind building up a strong organization with the capacity to develop expansions and new mines. This includes the Aitik 36 expansion, the startup of the Kankberg gold-tellurium mine, and the Garpenberg 2.5 expansion. Most importantly, the mineral resources and reserves of Boliden increased significantly during this period. In 2015, Mr. Moström took on the new challenge of serving as the CEO of LKAB. Under his leadership, LKAB has returned to being a strongly profitable company.

Dr. Rognvald Boyd, the recipient of the seventh FEM Special Award

Dr. Boyd has shown exceptional dedication to the mining of mineral resources in the Arctic Region. After receiving his PhD in Aberdeen in 1972, he moved to Norway to join the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU) and to study nickel in the Råna intrusion in Northern Norway. This work proved essential to the opening of the Bruvann nickel mine in 1989.
 

Dr. Boyd has been responsible for the international activities of the NGU since the 1990's. He has facilitated multiple mineral resource networks on the Fennoscandian Peninsula and in Kola, the Baltic and Africa. In 2013, he assumed responsibility for facilitating the Circum-Arctic project, with the aim of compiling information and data on mineral resources north of the 60th parallel. Through a tremendous leadership and editorial effort, Dr. Boyd managed to gather a large group of researchers and specialists from the USA, Canada, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Products released in 2016 include books, maps, a database and an online portal with detailed information and data on mineral resources in the Arctic. Dr. Boyd officially retired from the Geological Survey of Norway at almost the same time as the Circum-Arctic project was concluded.
