The Lassedalen fluorspar deposit was mined on a small scale during World War II when it was developed to a depth of 40m below surface and fluorspar was mined from a 560m long drift for use in aluminium smelting. The mine was dewatered in the 1970s by Norsk Hydro A/S and 29 diamond drill holes were drilled at surface as well as a series of percussion drill holes underground.

1000 - 1600 Ma
|Mesoproterozoic plutonic rocks|
Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)
Comments: Deep-seated to high-level intrusions are included. Many charnockites, anorthosites, and large ophiolites, classified as plutons, are distinguished in the database using the SIGNIF item. Ophiolites were classified as plutons, even where remnants may be extrusive and/or sedimentary.
Lithology: Plutonic rocks
