Future mining

Demand for metals on the world market is increasing, and the Swedish as well as the international mining industry is increasing its production.

Sweden is the country in Europe which is the most important metal producer, and the Swedish mining industry is important also from a European perspective.The best opportunities to find new ore deposits in Europe can be found in Sweden and Finland.

LTU is Sweden’s centre for research and education which focuses on mining, and the clearly stated ambition is to be an internationally strong centre of excellence.The research covers the whole spectrum, from prospecting via mining and processing to metallurgy and environmental issues as well as research on occupational health and safety, the commodity economy and the societal aspects of extraction and processing.
