Porphyry copper deposit, situated 15 km southeast of the town Gällivare and 50 km north of the Arctic circle. Proven reserves reported in Jan 2007 were 526 Mton of ore containing 0.28 % of Cu, 0.2 ppm Au and 2 ppm Ag. The ore zone is almost 3 km long and 500 m wide, the strike is almost north-south. The dip of the orebody is 50 degrees and it plunges to the north. The southern part of the ore zone reaches down to 400 m and in the northern part the ore depth is still unknown.

Sweden's largest sulphide mine with an annual production of 35 Mt of ore, and the biggest open pit operation in northern Europe.

The deposit is proposed to represent a Palaeoproterozoic, strongly metamorphosed porphyry copper deposit that was affected ca. 100 Ma later by a regional IOCG-type hydrothermal event (Wanhainen et al., 2012).

The surrounding area of Aitik deposit consists of Precambrian (about 1.9-1.8 Ga) intermediate volcanic rocks, clastic sediments, and intrusions of granite, gabbro and diorite (Witschard, 1996). The Aitik deposit is situated close to a structurally important NW-SE striking shear zone in northern Norrbotten ore province. The host rocks of the Aitik deposit is probably formed about 1.9 Ga years ago (Wanhainen & Martinsson, 1999).
The contact between the main ore zone and the hanging wall is sharp, being a thrustfault. The contact between the footwall and the ore zone is gradual and grade dependent. The main ore minerals are chalcopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite, occurring as dissemination and veinlets. The footwall consists of biotite-amphibole gneiss and intrusions of quartz-monzodiorite. The main ore zone comprises biotite-schist/gneiss and muscovite schist. The hanging wall consists of amphibole-biotite gneiss and pegmatite and is barren in copper. (from a paper by I.Takala, M Kontturi et al, and Boliden fact sheet 2007)
Tha name "Aitik" is of Saami language and translates to " Storage".
