LKAB monitors land movements. The mining causes changes on the ground surface when the iron ore is being extracted. The mountain masses slowly descend and fill out the place where the ore has been. LKAB does not break ore in areas where people live, but even the land close to the the mine can move. The first movements are not visible and cause no damage, they can only be measured using sensitive instruments that are placed on these test points.
