The Swedish town of Kiruna is sinking into the caverns excavated by more than half a century of iron ore mining in the region. In response, local officials and the state-owned miner responsible for the mining work are committing over a billion dollars to relocate much of the town three kilometres to the east, trying to transplant the spirit of Kiruna to a new, safer, location.
