The massive pyritic Cu-(Zn) sulphide deposits are located about 80 km ESE of Bodø and 35 km from the town of Fauske (in the municipality with the same name). The sulphide mineralisation was first discovered in 1860 by a trader named Mons Petter. Mining begun in the year of 1886 and the mines closed finally in 1991.

A number of orebodies has been mined both north and south of the lake Langvann. The mines in the south are Furuhaugen, Sagmo, Jakobsbakken and Anna. To the North are (E to W); Bursi, Mons Petter, Charlotta, Giken, Hankabakken, Ny-Sulitjelma amd Holmsen (Gudrun) mines. There are approximately 20 orebodies with an aggregate 35 million metric tons of ore.

The sulphide deposits are a classical example of stratabound volcanic-exhalative mineralisation which underwent subsequent amphibolite-grade metamorphism and polyphase tectonic deformation during the Scandinavian portion of the Caledonian Orogeny (Vokes 1976, Cook 1996).
The 1 to 3 meter thick orebodies follow the general structures which dip 10 to 40 degrees.
