She is one of those who is surprised that the mine did not create greater tax revenue and stopped the relocation from the municipality during the years 2018-2020.

- But that will soon change.

I believe in the mine.

It's good for Pajala.

If the pandemic subsides, people will dare to move to Pajala and work here, says Anna-Greta Uusitalo from Jarhois.

"Mine gives people forward thinking"

Tove Jengwall from Tärendö is of the same opinion.

- I did not expect both tax revenues and the population to decrease, but the mine gives people a forward-thinking spirit and many jobs are created.

On the whole, it is great, she says.
