Kiruna Mining has appointed a new CEO. Hans Nilsson takes up his post on April 1, announces Critical Metals, which is Kiruna Mining's parent company, in a press release.

For more than 25 years, Nilsson has held various management positions within iron ore companies such as LKAB, Minelco, Northland Resources, Ferrexpo and Kaunis Iron.

Nilsson was former CEO and CEO of a bioenergy company based in Vancouver, Canada. He has the extensive international experience of having lived and worked in the Far East, North America and Western Europe, emphasized the press release.

Kiruna Iron’s vision is to become a globally significant supplier of premium quality industrial minerals to the steel industry, and other industries that rely on high-grade minerals for their value creation. The Company’s strategy is to develop its Swedish iron ore portfolio whilst actively seeking opportunities to acquire high-quality advanced projects. Kiruna Iron plans to list its securities on a Nordic securities exchange in the short-medium term.

The property lies in the famous Cobalt province and is approximately 47 km south of the town of Cobalt. The picture shows an old mine in the town of Cobalt. In the early 1900s, the area was heavily mined for silver; the silver ore also contained cobalt. By 1910, the community was the fourth highest producer of silver in the world. Mining declined significantly by the 1930s, together with the local population. In late 2017 one publication referred to Cobalt as a ghost town, but the high demand for cobalt, used in making batteries for mobile devices and electric vehicles, is leading to great interest in the area among mining companies.
