After a decade of anticipation, a new gold mine has opened in Sweden. How will this impact our mining industry and society at large? Tavex has dug up the answers!

Where is the new Gold mine in Sweden?

Sweden has its first new gold mine in ten years, located in Fäbodtjärn near Vindelgransele in the Lycksele municipality. The area is estimated to contain gold worth nearly one billion kronor, and the mine has opened after fifteen years of planning and numerous environmental assessments. 

Throughout the process, the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and various courts played significant roles. Now, with gold prices higher than ever, the future looks very promising for the mine.

How many mines are there in Sweden?

As of 2024, with the opening of the Fäbodtjärn gold mine, there are a total of 13 active mines in Sweden. This image from Bergsstaten shows the locations of all the mines in Sweden:

Environmental impact of gold mining in Sweden

The Fäbodtjärn mine has faced criticism from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and local residents. They are concerned that valuable natural environments may be damaged and waterways polluted, which in turn could affect individuals’ access to water and fishing in the nearby Vindel River. 

The environmental impact of gold mining is a hotly debated topic in Sweden. The process can affect both waterways and ecosystems. Therefore, strict environmental regulations are followed, and collaborations occur between:

  • Companies
  • Authorities
  • Local communities.

Despite the challenges, Swedish mining companies strive to make gold extraction as sustainable as possible.
