Processing - LKAB

An important precondition for LKAB's cost-effectiveness is our raw material, magnetite ore, as well as the energy-efficient pelletizing process. The processing of the iron ore commences once the ore has been transported to the sorting plant from the underground and surface mines. The processing takes place in three stages: sorting, concentration and pelletizing. Once the iron ore concentrate ...

Sorting - LKAB

When rough sorting has been completed, the ore is separated from the waste rock in magnetic separators. This is possible because the magnetite ore is magnetic. In order to achieve the correct fractions for the subsequent concentration process, the ore is screened and crushed to form even smaller pieces. The sorting process increases the ore's iron content from around 45 percent to ...

Kiruna Iron Ore Mine, Sweden - Mining Technology

Since mining began at the iron ore operation more than 100 years ago, Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara AB (LKAB) produced over 950Mt of ore, yet only one-third of the original ore body has been extracted. Since mid-1999, Kiruna’s haulage level at a depth of 775m has been replaced by the next level down at 1,045m and expansion is being carried out to increase the depth further, which will support production until 2030.
