Old graphite mine.

There is very little information about this mine on the internet.

It seems as if the original spelling "Grassåsen" is incorrect. At the given coordinates there is a "Grasåsen" farm.

However, exactly where the mine is, is impossible to say from a map study.

The situation is unfortunately more complex. In addition to a farm called Grasåsen, there are 6 more hills in the municipality by that name.
