ABB press trip to Sweden 2010

Visiting a record-breaking mine

Located near Gällivare, in the arctic Lapland region of Sweden, the copper deposit at Aitik was discovered in the 1930s although mining only began in 1968 when technology was sufficiently advanced to profitably extract the metal. In 2006, with demand for copper running strong, Boliden decided to make the biggest investment in its history to increase output.
