    A scoping study into the Viscaria copper project, in Sweden, has confirmed that a copper-only development could be justified. In 2013, project owner Avalon Minerals conducted a scoping study on the copper and iron potential at the Viscaria project, which revealed that an openpit mining operation could produce between 15 000 t/y and 22 000 t/y of copper, based on a production rate of 3.5-million tonnes a year and a mine-life of some 10.3 years.

    ASX-listed junior Hannans Reward said on Tuesday that its joint venture (JV) partner, Lovisagruvan AB, would proceed with Stage 2 of the Pahtohavare copper/gold project, in Sweden.

Kiruna Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    With an ore body 4km long, 80m thick and reaching a depth of 2km, LKAB's Kiruna is the world's largest, most modern underground iron ore mine. Since mining began here over 100 years ago, LKAB has 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 Since mid-1999, Kiruna's haulage level at a depth of 775m has been replaced by the next level down at 1,045m, which will support production until 2018. The operation employs 1,800 people, of whom 400 work in the mine. In 2006, Kiruna produced about two-thirds of LKAB's total output of 23.3Mt, of which 16.9Mt were pellets. The company's sales of iron-ore products also totalled 23.3Mt, of which 15.9Mt were pellets.
