Andersen (1931) writes that there were three small quarries from which an insignificant quantity of feldspar has been mined.

The coordinates as presented above are an estimation.

On an altitude map two of the quarries may be idetified, but the third needs confirmation in the field.
Quarry in the E: 58.60793°N 7.94076°E
Quarry in the W: 58.60787°N 7.94118°E
