Stress Modeling Malmberget

LKAB plans to increase the production in Malmberget mine to 20 million metric tons of iron ore per year. The objective of this work was to create a detailed model of all orebodies to study the stress situation with continued ore production at depth. Itasca constructed a three-dimensional mine-scale model for the Malmberget mine, including all orebodies (active and previously mined). The model was created in the CAD-program Rhino and using the element generator KUBRIX and analyses were conducted with FLAC3D.
