A copper deposit.
Nordrum and van der Wel (1981) mentioned a copper ore occurrence in conglomorates and sedimentary breccias near the contact between (meta)sedimentary Caledonian (~400MA) and Sweco-Norwegian (+1000MA)granites and gneisses. The locality was found in 1764. The locality could not be re-found by NGU geologists, but the area is very inaccessible.
