Mineraliseringen er blottet på ryggen som danner grense mellom Nordland og Troms, i en høyde av 670m.o.h. Det er her 1m mektig finkornet kvartsbåndet magnetitt-mineralisering (prøve 01). Bånding i mm-cm-skala. Mot SØ forsvinner den under en isbre, og mot NV er den dekket av blokker. Ved UTM 524790 7605150 (630m.o.h.) er det sannsynligvis samme mineralisering som dukker opp igjen i fjellsida. Den fortsetter NV-over til UTM 524580 7605230 (600m.o.h.), hvor det er ca. 2m mektighet av semimassiv magnetkis-magnetitt i mm-cm-bånd i gneisen (prøve 02).
