Road 936 (or Þórdalsheiðarvegur) is a offroad trail. Zeolites found in a roadside rock (a road cut ?) along the valley, at Áreyjadal. (Spelled also as Areyadalur, but this is probably a mispelling of Áreyjadal, a valley).

The coordinates are for the valley, Áreyjadal, and not for the exact spot for the find of zeolites.
