Bjørlykke locality n° 47.

Barth (1931) designates this as Landås III (not to be confused with Landås 3 Feldspar Quarry).

The Landås 7 quarries comprise at least eight separate quarries and prospects, all working in the same pegmatite.

A map Stensrud (2009) has drawn shows only four quarries.

It seems he overlooked the largest of all Landås 7 quarries, which lies just north of his 7 and 7b localities.

Corneliussen at pegmatite.no lists eight localities, some of which are hard to see on the altitude map.

The coordinates are given for a point in the middle of the quarries.

There are probable prospects at:
58.50184°N 7.85898°E
58.50108°N 7.85963°E
58.50115°N 7.86144°E
58.50101°N 7.85981°E

North of Beinmyr 8 there has been prospected at several places, difficult to recognize with certainty at the altitude map:
58.50109°N 7.86214°E
58.50105°N 7.86205°E
58.50103°N 7.8622°E
58.50131°N 7.86249°E
