Swedish term or phrase: malmiljoner kronoroppar
Hello

In:

Bönder lärde sig att hacka sig ned i olika ***malmiljoner kronoroppar*** med hjälp av eld och brytverktyg, inte så djupt.

I seem to have an adjective and a noun, neither of which I really understand.

Can anyone help please?

thanks

Explanation:
Looks to me like an inadvertant search and replace has been made.
just looking at it what, I see is "malmiljoner kronoroppar", my guess is that it said "malmkroppar", i.e. "ore" or "bodies of ore", but someone has goofed and done a search and replace on "mkr" to "miljoner kronor" (i.e. million kronas).
