GeoPool was founded in 2007 as a private business in response to the growing need for exploration services in Fennoscandia. Over the years, GeoPool gained more expertise, and currently, we employ over 20 professionals.
At GeoPool, we provide services on a broad scale, from field exploration to permit management and corporate administration. This makes us unique in the mining industry. We connect exploration and mining companies with contractors, stakeholders, landowners, and supervising authorities. With this focus, we can ensure a smooth flow of information between all parties of the exploration project.
We support responsible exploration and endorse exploration practices that minimize the impact on the environment. An essential part of GeoPool’s operation is also maintaining a good relationship with the local communities. In this work, our proficiency in the local language is a great asset. We also value safe work environments and regularly introduce new technologies to improve work safety in the field and at the office.
GeoPool has registered companies both in Finland and Sweden. The GeoPool Headquarter is easily accessible in the vicinity of Helsinki airport in Finland, while field activities in both countries are operated on-site from local field bases.

GeoPool holds an extensive network within the industry. Our connections consist of everything from authorities and universities to drilling companies, geophysical service providers, laboratory service providers, and other service and equipment providers in the Nordic region.
