This chapter focuses on the industrial future of mining and refining industries, which was conducted for the Bothnian Green Logistic Corridor (BGLC) project. It starts with corridor development and focuses on considerations combining the development of transport corridors to its role and boost for a European mine-related industrial future. As a result, frameworks for mining and refining industry-related decision-making and development are presented. The main issues affecting the decision-making are markets and business environment, and logistics and transport issues including infrastructure. Environmental and energy issues, and interests and interaction of different stakeholders also play their part. The role of corridor development for the European industrial future is also discussed. BGLC can be considered to be the backbone in the development of infrastructure based on industrial needs. BGLC combines, as the missing south-north axis corridor, a Scandinavian “resource bank” to significant industrial centers in the whole European Union area.
