The company was established in 1890, and it is 100% state-owned since the 1950:s. The iron ore is processed to pellets and fines, and are transported by train (Malmbanan) to the harbours at Narvik and Luleå and to the steelmill at Luleå (SSAB).

The iron ore products are mainly sold to European steelmills. Other important markets are North Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Industrial minerals are sold mainly in Europe, but also in Asia and the USA.

There are iron ore mines, processing plants and ore harbors in northern Sweden and Norway, sales office in Belgium, Germany and Singapore. LKAB has subsidiaries for industrial minerals with processing plants in Sweden, Finland, Greenland, the UK, the Netherlands, Greece, Turkey and China. Additional subsidiaries are in Germany, the USA and Hong Kong as well as representative offices in Slovakia and Thailand.
