In the beginning of the 1930s there were 11 feldspar quarries at the land of the Mølland farm. These were named by Bjørlykke (1934) Mølland 1, 2, 3 etc.

The total number of quarries is higher, though some are very small. The following places should be checked:
58.50153°N 7.89283°Ø
58.50439°N 7.89134°Ø
58.50387°N 7.88386°Ø

58.51104°N 7.90923°Ø
58.51077°N 7.90937°Ø

Especially known from this area are museum specimens of aeschynite-(Y), spessartine and monazite.

The coordinates are for the farmhouse.

WARNING: the owner of the Mølland quarries doesn't allow any form of collecting. Please, do not attempt to visit them carrying equipment. When he sees an unknown car parked near the entrance road to the quarries, he will hunt you down. The quarries are strictly out of bounds for mineral collectors!
