Sulphide-bearing hydrothermal quartz veins mined for Cu.

In an almost straight line from the Moberg mine in NW direction there are dozens of prospects. Here are some of the bigger:
59.31715°N 7.88573°Ø
59.31605°N 7.88565°Ø
59.31541°N 7.88494°Ø

59.31232°N 7.88074°Ø
59.3111°N 7.87776°Ø

Even though they show clearly on the altitude map, there is no guarantee they will be easy to find back.
