Organisation

SGU is organised to meet the society’s need for geological information. Our five departments reflect the broadness of SGU’s expertise – we have an economic-political as well as an environmental-political task from the government.

One of the departments is the Mining Inspectorate. This is the official body in Sweden responsible for issuing permits for exploration and mining. The Mining Inspectorate is headed by the Chief Mining Inspector.

The SGU head office is located in Uppsala. We also have branch offices in Gothenburg, Lund and Malå. The offices of the Mining Inspectorate are located in Luleå.
