The primary objective for the exploration division in Dannemora is to increase the iron ore reserves in the Dannemora ore field. A further aim is to develop new prospects into mineable ore deposits. The division has it´s focus on iron ore but is also engaged in projects concerning base and precios metals.
The exploration activities in the Dannemora Group represent a base for development of the following areas:
- Exploration for iron in the Dannemora mine and its surroundings.
- Exploration for base and precious metals in the Dannemora field and its surroundings.
- Identification and evaluation of new deposits.
From a historical perspective, Bergslagen has been one of the world’s more important mining areas. The region is globally perceived as extremely under-explored. Consequently, we at the exploration division must combine our high level of geological knowledge with modern exploration methods in order to create the right environment for developing old and new deposits in the region.
