Modern life would be impossible without minerals. They are used in the production of everything from paint to cosmetics, water treatment to sound proofing, concrete to ceramics. LKAB Minerals mine, process and manufacture minerals for every conceivable application.
The LKAB Minerals Group is internationally active in the market of industrial minerals with a leading position within a number of product applications. The Group is part of the Swedish company LKAB, one of the world’s leading producers of highly upgraded iron ore products, providing millions of tonnes annually to a worldwide market. LKAB started operations in 1890 and is an international, high-technology minerals group with a strong commitment to new technology, research and development.
LKAB’s mineral company LKAB Minerals processes minerals and creates new business opportunities by supplying mineral products that are customized for industry, often with environmental advantages.
Magnetite products that originate from LKAB’s iron ore are used as water purification chemicals, for desulphurization of coal, as finely ground products in polymers for sound and vibration dampening and as ballast in heavy concrete for such things as radiation shielding and underwater construction.
