Located near Haukedalsvatnet at a part of the lake called Kjørstad-kilen which often figures as the name of the locality. This old apatite quarry was already abandoned in 1874 when W. C. Brøgger and H. H. Reusch found large enstatite crystals on the dump. Apatite veins traversing mica-schist and hornblende-schists.
