    Abstract

    Finnish mining industry is currently facing a challenge to rebuild the industrial culture after about an era of 20 years when only few mine has been active. In the late 80's the Finnish government defined the state level industrial policy not supporting national and state-owned mining industry in Finland. Most of the Finnish mines were closed, ducation system was not encouraged to support mining industry and so forth. As the global mineral scarcity started to be a driver the Finnish mining industry begun to recover at the middle of first decade of this millennium. During this rebuilding process the mining industry has increasingly faced negative publicity and the social license to operate (SLO) has become a severe question. Here, the challenges faced currently by the mining industry are reflected upon another resource extractive industry, the forest industry.
