The beginning of geological survey activities in Finland was closely connected with the father of Finnish mineralogy, Nils Nordenskiöld, who operated as the General Intendant of the Mining Council during 1823–1855. He was the one who showed initiative and pursued the beginning of geological surveys and exploration funded by the government. His initiatives were fulfilled by founding a geological office to the government’s Mining Council in 1870.
