Description
Bergheller under glimmerskifer, der enkelte gjenværende partier av både klorittskifer og lys, talkrik kleberstein opptrer helt i bunn. Anslagsvis er klebersteinssonen 2-5 meter tykk. Under befaringen i 2001 ble det ikke observert huggespor eller gryteemner, men det antas at sonen er et delvis gjenfylt, utdrevet klebersteinsbrudd. Bruddet er merket som vernet på økonomiske kartverk.
Historical significance
Bruddet er vernet, og antas å være førreformatorisk.
Location
Forekomsten ligger på vestsiden av Katlaberg i Os kommune, like nord for Vargavågen. Adkomst via traktorveg rundt 200 meter fra nærmeste hus.
