Ostrobothnia: Geological Setting is Rich but Under-Invested
Exploration focus and investment has resulted in multiple major discoveries in Sweden’s “Gold Line” and VMS trend.
Similar concentrations of mineral deposits should occur along the Raahe-Ladoga shear zone of Finland given that it sits within the same Svecofennian orogen, abutting the Karelian craton.
Orogenic gold deposits are prevalent in the Svecofennian domain:
- These fertile host rocks have been mineralised during multiple events
- Precious metals such as gold get remobilised into favourable geological structures such as those in the Raahe-Ladoga trend
