Mining

Worlds best Rock n Roll

Norrbotten is home to Europe’s largest iron ore production with more new mines waiting in the wings. LKAB’s underground mining operations are carried out using world beating technology.

A century of high tech development has also led to a number of world beating products. Magnetite ore (the rock) is transformed into the worlds’ most eco-friendly iron ore pellets (the roll).

But wait, there’s more. Development projects to create carbon-neutral solutions for industry have already been realized, and several adopted.
