We are Kaunis Iron

With new owners and strong local commitment we have re-started the iron ore mine in Pajala. Our ambition is to build a business that is durable in the long term and operates sustainably. To us, this means mining that retains its local roots, creates value for Norrbotten and contributes to community development in Pajala, at the same time as we take a strong position on the world market. Our target is yearly production at 2.1 million tonnes of finished product.


Our unique iron ore concentrate, with its quality and environmental advantages, is already in strong demand among the world’s steelworks. Thanks to a sustainable product, a skilfully run business and operational, world-class facilities, Kaunis Iron has found its position on the global market.
