In the national database for cultural heritage sites (kulturminnesok.no) three small feldspar quarries are registered as non-protacted cultural heritage sites (nr. 172885-1). Their coordinates are:
58.5363224,8.8491722
58.5362036,8.8493325
58.5361831,8.84869

Production must have been predominantly feldspar, since seemingly was most of the quartz discarded (kulturminnesok.no).
