Robit Plc and Veljekset Toivanen Oy say they have signed a long-term cooperation agreement of supplying drilling consumables to the Sotkamo Silver mine in Kainuu, Finland.
The deliveries of Robit drilling consumables start along with the first mining project in January 2023. Veljekset Toivanen works as the prime contractor at Sotkamo Silver, and has a three-year-agreement in place with a two-year extension option. Robit also supplies its consumables to Endomines’ Pampalo gold mine for the opening of the Ilomantsi open-pit mine.
Arto Halonen (pictured left), Group CEO, Robit, said: “We are extremely pleased to start building a long-term cooperation with Veljekset Toivanen. This agreement strengthens Robit’s position as the leading drilling consumables supplier in Finland.”
Ari Keskitalo (pictured right), Mining Manager, Veljekset Toivanen, added: “Our previous cooperation with Robit run smoothly. Thus, the new agreement of drilling consumables supply to Sotkamo Silver mine creates a natural continuum. In addition, one of our company’s values is locality, so Robit as a domestic actor was an easy choice.”
