Svappavaara: State-of-the-art mining and cozy village life meet
Familiar. Team-focused. Solution-oriented. Innovative. In Svappavaara, we currently extract iron ore in the open-pit mine of Leveäniemi. This is the very birthplace of the industry in our region, with mining starting as early as the 17th century. In the 1960s, LKAB resumed mining, establishing the world's most modern mining operation at that time. Despite, or thanks to, being a small village, there is an active, strong, local community here.
