Nordmark Odal Field (Nordmarksberg), Filipstad, Värmland, Sweden

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
 
Name(s) in local language(s):Nordmarks Odalfält (Nordmarksbergs gruvor), Filipstad, Värmland, Sverige


This area is not to be confused with Nordmark District (Nordmark malmtrakt in swedish) http://www.mindat.org/loc-220865.html.
It is not known when mining started in the Nordmark Odal Field; perhaps as early as medieval. Documentation exist from the early 17th century, Stor- and Gröngruvan are the oldest mines- Nygruvan is claimed to be discovered in the year 1665 and ores in the southern part was more or less depleted around 1800. Even though the ores in the northern end was known from ~ 1650, they were poor and not mined until much later, both gaining in size and quality.

The mines in this mining district were (listed roughly from South to North): Nya Snättan, Kistgruvan, Storgruvan, Zegolfgruvan, Tak- and Pelargruvan, Köpmannagruvan, Kittelgruvan *, Finngruvan, Gröngruvan, Butenholm, Bottengruvan, Nygruvan, Trinneborg (Gamla), Trinneborg (Lilla), Brattforsgruvan *, Grundsjögruvan(sometimes refered to as Grundsjögruvan and sometimes as Bjelkesgruvan), Skärpet, Östra Mossgruvan *, Mossgruvan *, Kogruvan *.
Mines with a * after are the most interesting mineralogically.
