Following the discovery of Pyhäsalmi, Outokumpu Oy conducted airborne geophysical surveys over an extensive area around the deposit, and a number of interesting anomalies were registered. Many of them contained zinc and copper-bearing sulfides, and a few proved to be mineable deposits, such as Ruostesuo and Kangasjärvi. In the postwar period, the role of ore samples sent by laymen to exploration organizations was of great significance in bringing to light new prospective areas.
