When a seismic event occurs tremors are generated which spread in the bedrock. Geophones that are placed around the mine register these tremors and the locality and magnitude can then be calculated. The seismic system is currently made up of approximately 200 geophones each in Malmberget and Kiruna. The system expands at more or less the same pace as the mines go deeper.
