If you take the tour into the LKAB mine they tell you all about how they dig their holes.

They use explosives to break up a lot of the rock and they detonate this at 1:30 every morning. Even though the mine is one kilometre underground you can still feel the tremor from anywhere in the town.

May not be worth waiting up for but if you are up watching the northen lights.......
