Magnetite mineral origin
Mined from our group resources, we can ensure long-term availability and consistent quality of our Magnetite products. Kiruna and Malmberget, in the northern part of Sweden, are the places where our magnetite mines are located. The ore is mined and processed at the mine site and railed to one of the two ports – Luleå (Sweden) or Narvik (Norway). The ports are part of the LKAB Group logistics structure and operated year-round.
Magnetite for foundry applications is harmless to the environment, non-toxic in all its forms and for all practical purposes – inert. You can download the Safety Data Sheet on the right of this page.
