Pegmatite quarry situated about 200m S of the farm Vestre Frikstad.
Bjørlykke locality nr 92.
Comment, Ronald Werner 25-03-2018:
Due to a recent update of the altitude map, a feature became visible that clearly has the shape of a small quarry. The distance from the Nedre Frikstad farm is ca. 188m, corresponding very well with Bjørlykke (1934).
However, field confirmation would be necessary to make it 100% certain.
