Workshop 2 - Future layout for deep mass mining LKAB

Welcome to the workshop hosted by LKAB where we will discuss the need of seismic control, stable infrastructure, and de-stressing measures in tomorrow’s safe and efficient mass mining operations. Layout and design are at the center of tomorrow's deep operations and this places demands on our ability to think outside the box or rather – think as if there was no box.

Urban transformation and license to operate (free of charge)

This session is free of charge and hosted by LKAB in close collaboration with Luleå University of Technology.

Moving two communities. This is a reality and challenge LKAB is facing. Around 5.000 homes and 700.000m² of housing and business premises will be replaced. 10.000 people – roughly a quarter of Malmfälten’s population – will need to be relocated. All in a relatively short period of time.

Kiruna and Malmberget are homes to the two largest underground iron ore mines in the world. The mines are encroaching on the settlements and the communities due to mining at greater depths. Existence for people living around the mines will be drastically affected.

The magnitude and time aspect are unique

The urban transformation of the communities is a large and complex process. Never before has such advanced and modern communities undergone such transformations due to an industrial need for land. The mines and communities are mutually dependent on each other, therefore the process of relocating people needs to be handled respectfully. Even though there’s local acceptance for the urban transformation – all change is stressful in practice, whether it is positive or negative.

Mine and society — side by side

LKAB provides approximately 17.000 jobs through direct and indirect job opportunities, locally and regionally. LKAB is an important contributor to the economic development of the region as well as for Sweden. So, if LKAB is to continue to provide jobs, pay taxes and be an active part of the local communities, habitants in Kiruna and Malmberget have to be relocated in order for our common future – for mining beyond 2060.

How is this possible? And how is it conducted?

Welcome to an exciting session and a walking tour of the new city center in Kiruna.

This session is hosted by LKAB in close collaboration with Luleå University of Technology and is free of charge. Reserve your seat today since there is a limited number of places available.
