Mineraliseringen ble funnet i 1900 og litt røsking foretatt 1903 - 1904. Mineraliseringen strekker seg fra sjøen og nordover som en ca. 40m bred rustsone. Det er middelskornet gabbro med magnetitt- ilmenitt- svovelkisdisseminasjon (prøve 01). I denne observeres 2 ganger/linser av middelskornet massiv magnetitt- ilmenitt med svovelkis (prøve 03).

Norges jern-titanforekomster

Abstract:
Oppramsing av hele landets jern-titanforekomster, hvorav 15 trekkes fram som de største. Hver forekomst beskrives ut fra befaring med geologiske og dels kjemiske data. Oppredningsresultater presenteres også. Oppramsing- en går fra Hedmark til Finnmark i nord.
