Gold­rush in St. Jons­fjord

The public hea­ring regar­ding the appli­ca­ti­on for fur­ther geo­lo­gi­cal inves­ti­ga­ti­ons of the gold occur­rence near St. Jons­fjord is com­ple­ted. 12 Insti­tu­ti­ons inclu­ding the Nor­we­gi­an Polar Insti­tu­te and seve­ral govern­men­tal depart­ments have for­ward­ed their comm­ents to the Sys­sel­man­nen, who will con­sider them when issuing the detail­ed requi­re­ments for the envi­ron­men­tal audi­ting.

The cur­rent pro­ce­du­re con­cerns is limi­t­ed to geo­lo­gi­cal inves­ti­ga­ti­ons, inclu­ding dril­ling. In case the occur­rence should be eco­no­mic­al, then the appli­ca­ti­on for a poten­ti­al mine would be a com­ple­te­ly new pro­cess on a lar­ger sca­le and with open out­co­me.

St. Jons­fjord is at the west coast of Spits­ber­gen, bet­ween Isfjord and Kongsfjord, out­side the pro­tec­ted are­as
