An area of industrial development at the contact between the Drammen granite and contact metamorphosed cambrosilurian sediments close to the main highway E 18 between Asker and Drammen. During road constructions and excavation of building sites minerals have been collected during the last 30 years both from miarolitic cavities in the granite and from the hornfels.
20 valid minerals.
This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

|Permian - Carboniferous|
252.17 - 358.9 Ma
|Carboniferous-Permian plutonic rocks|
Age: Paleozoic (252.17 - 358.9 Ma)
Comments: Deep-seated to high-level intrusions are included. Many charnockites, anorthosites, and large ophiolites, classified as plutons, are distinguished in the database using the SIGNIF item. Ophiolites were classified as plutons, even where remnants may be extrusive and/or sedimentary.
Lithology: Plutonic rocks
