LKAB's transformation will require large investments, where the importance of the right work methodology and choice of technology will be decisive for maximum value to be created and utilized. All primary production systems will be reviewed.

  • Within the mining production area, the design for mining, logistics and infrastructure needs to be developed so that technology and methods become significantly more efficient compared to today's mines. The ore must be mined at an even greater depth with the following challenges in efficiency, safety, volume and costs.
