The NGU registered an iron deposit near Båsvatn, which led to the discovery of an unknown quarry.
NGU Deposit Area 911 - 008 at 58.8360000,9.0427570
It is doubtful that there is any relationship between the here registered quarry and the NGU locality.
The aerial map of 1970 shows a white kind of rock, indicating that it might be a feldspar quarry.
