Old ilmenite mine. A about 4km long and up to 50m wide noritic orebody embedded in the Åna-Sira anorthosite massif. It was mined by Titania from 1916 to 1964. The total production was about 10 millions tonn ore with an average of 18-19 % TiO2, accounting for 11-13% of the world production of TiO2 during that period.

|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
