Mineraliseringen har utgående på Mikkeltindens N- og V-side. 520m.o.h. (UTM 504720 7619580) er det en finkornet kvartsbåndet magnetitt-mineralisering (prøve 01 og 02) som er 6m mektig. Vekselbånding mellom kvartsitt og massiv magnetitt er i mm- (opptil 1cm)skala, overveiende finkornet, med enkelte bånd både av kvartsitt og magnetitt som er middelskornet. I ligg er det 1m mektig rusten kvartsitt. Sidebergart er monzonittisk granulittgneis. Mot NØ fortsetter mineraliseringen ned stupet, og mot SV forløper den minst 200m.
