Hello! I´m new to this board and happy to see that there is a section dedicated to Scandinavia here. I need help with a question regarding Norway. It wasn´t just Sweden that produced iron ore during the war, that was then shipped out of Narvik, but Norway had iron ore mines of its own. Production levels were a fair bit lower than Swedens but still significant. After the german invasion 1940 levels went down significantily, something like 50%, and stayed low for the rest of the war. I´m trying to figure out what happened but it´s not easy. I have looked for sabotage actions but found very little, instead i find stories of mines that were closed because they were not profitable to run and how the germans in january -42 closed the mines around Kirkenes because of lack of coal. It looks like neither the norwegians nor the germans took these mines very seriously which puzzles me a bit. It doesn´t help that when you put Norway and iron ore in a google-search, 98% of the results are about Narvik and swedish ore. Is there anybody here who knows anything more about this? Any british or norwegian operations aimed directly at the iron ore mines that you know of?
