Right down the display mine, the guides told me about the company and partly about modern mining and how it could have a whole city to move. Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara Aktiebolag, LKAB, is a mining group owned by the Swedish state, founded in 1890 with iron ore mining in Kiruna and Malmberget, and the company is Europe's largest iron ore producer.
