Mineral deposits of national interest

The Mineral deposits of national interest map viewer shows areas that contain mineral deposits of national interest.

The deposits at these sites consist of valuable substances or materials, such as natural stone, industrial minerals and metals, considered by SGU to be important. More than half of the areas of national interest are demarcated in detail; the remainder are merely marked by a dot on the map. An assessment is made in accordance with the Environmental Code (chapter 3, section 7 second paragraph). SGU is responsible for ensuring that the relevant county administrative boards and municipalities are provided with information on the areas that contain mineral deposits of national interest.
