Viscaria is a Swedish publicly traded company scaling up to become a modern and responsible mining company through the reopening of the Viscaria Mine in Kiruna. The high copper content of the deposit, assessed mineral resources, geographical location, and growing team of employees mean that Viscaria is well-positioned to deliver high-quality copper. With the help of the latest technology in mining, logistics, and water purification, we strive to become one of the world’s most sustainable copper producers. In addition to the Viscaria Mine, the company holds processing concessions and exploration permits in Arvidsjaur and Tvistbo.
