Ingmar Haga, Vice-President, Europe, Agnico Eagle


It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you all to the 11th Fennoscandian Exploration and Mining Conference to be held again at the beautiful Levi Ski Resort in Lapland, Finland.

This event that has become the largest exploration and mining convention in Europe is the place to meet colleagues, to learn about new discoveries and emerging mine and mine development projects. We are very delighted to sponsor the conference as Agnico Eagle is this year celebrating its 60th Anniversary.

Looking forward to a rich and productive experience and hope you have a good time in Levi.
