Consists of three main orebodies which have been mined: Centralgruvan, Herrgruvan and Väggruvan.
A number of orebodies are known such as: Centralgruve-, Herrgruve-, Väggruve-, Bergmästar-, Januari-, Diamant-, November-, Hemfrids- and Fogde-malmen (= orebody).

Fe 62% and P 0,6 %. Mine closed in 1977.

The mine is well known for the big collapse in March 1961 when a hole with a circumference of 1km opened in the middle of the night (see link, in Swedish).
