The mining concession covers 6,000 hectares, of which an area of 1,000 hectares has been designated for mining operations. Talvivaara is responsible for the restoration of the mine area after the closure of the mining operations. The company has prepared a rehabilitation plan for the mine, and restoration measures are continuously implemented as the ramp-up progresses. After the closure of operations, the Kuusilampi and Kolmisoppi open pits will be allowed to fill up with water and the areas will be landscaped by planting vegetation. The gypsum ponds will be equipped with subsoil drainage, covered and landscaped. Talvivaara collects and stores soil removed from the top layer before mining operations are commenced. It will be used for bottom structures during landscaping after the closure of the mining operations.
