In the Undeland area there are at least 11 quarries and prospects (2018).

Andersen (1931) combined several quarries as Undeland 1.

After 1931 there has been mined feldspar at several places, as is clearly visible at an aerial picture of 1972. 11 individual quarries and prospects are visible. Undeland 1 is the largest.

There is no data available about the size of the quarries, the amount of feldspar that has been mined, or the mineralogy of the newly added quarries.

Stensrud (2009) marks only 4 of the 11 quarries at his map, describes only Undeland 1 and 2, but didn't mark Undeland 5-11 at the map.

The coordinates are for the farmhouse.

N.B. The name Undeland was in the old days also written as Underland or Unneland. Current maps consistently use the name Undeland.
