Orefields was founded in 2011 with the goal of becoming an established contractor within Raise Boring. We started our operations in early 2012 with two contracts for LKAB in the Kiruna mine. Our base is in Kiruna, north of the Arctic Circle. This is our home and from our area’s unique surroundings and nature we derive our inspiration and energy.
As a new player in the market, and as a supplier to the world’s most modern underground mine and to other important customers, we are determined to always be at the forefront of technology and methods.
Our motto is ”precision and experience”.
