Environment and conditions

 

        The current maximum depth of the mine is 1444m.

 

    Visiting hours are every day from 5 am – 22 pm.

 

    Good air quality is ensured via a continuous and maintained fresh air supply from above ground.

 

       The humidity and temperature vary from level to level. The maximum temperature at the main level (1410) is 25 degrees Celsius. Humidity between levels can range from 50-100%. It is important to note however, that the temperature and humidity at a certain level stays stable.

 

     To facilitate safe passage around the mine via tunnels, driving routes are maintained daily.

 

    The main level, tunnels, and research facilities are fortified by rockbolts, iron netting, and shotcrete.

 

    Microseismic monitoring, as well as real-time monitoring and warning of harmful gases, are the key in providing a safe environment for all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Callio TestMINE initiative has been started. What an adventure and vision, Callio FutureMINE, the best in the world test environment for mining technology and innovations in Pyhäsalmi mine. #TestMINE #CallioPyhajarvi #PyhasalmiMine youtu.be/AD9LpM6Ls-0

Callio SpaceLab, lunar and planetary space missions - worth of reading 👍 twitter.com/JJoutsenvaara/…

Euroopan syvin reikä Pyhäsalmeen? GA Drilling Slovakiasta sekä Finest Bay Area Development Oy ja Pyhäjärven Callio yhteistyöhön uuden porausteknologian kehittämisestä ja testauksesta. #CallioPyhajarvi #PyhasalmiMine #FinEstBayArea #gadrilling callio.info/2017/wp-conten…

Kohta se alkaa. Voiko tätä syödä? Ohjelma jossa on nuriseva kokki ja innosta tärisevä tiedemies matkalla ruoantuotannon tulevaisuuteen ja mahdollisuuksiin. Osa toimii, osa ei. #voikotätäsyödä? #yleareena pic.twitter.com/gLKqFkyPVf Retweeted by Callio Lab

What do you expect to see at the depth of 1.5 km? Physicists filling the #underground Lab 2 of @CallioPyhajarvi with their instruments. The research is done as a part of @BalticRegBSUIN project. #BSUIN @UniOulu @uniofjyvaskyla @baltic_sea_prog @Moedas #interreg #BSR #BSI pic.twitter.com/HIaGPiZ6OV Retweeted by Callio Lab

Researchers show example in #recycling: instead of having everything new and costly the EMMA cosmic ray experiment uses of detectors from former experiments at @CERN #LEP_DELPHI & @KITKarlsruhe KASCADE #ResearchImpactEU @CallioLab @UniOulu @uniofjyvaskyla pic.twitter.com/ODtyfVTXgv Retweeted by Callio Lab

Henrika Pihlajaniemi is excited to have 'real life laboratory' studying new #adaptivelighting and #intelligentlighting in underground environment. @CallioLab #researchcommunity @UniOulu @ouluschoolofarchitecture@GTK_FI #undergroundscience pic.twitter.com/xnOewWvZV3
