This graphite occurence was found based on the 2013 aitborne geophysical measurement done by NGU. At this locality there is a severral km long geophysical anomaly in an area with very little exposure. Graphite mineralisations is found in som small outcrops along a forest road. the o graphite ore is coarse grained and flaky. Two analysis vary in grade from 9% to aabout 3 % graphitic carbon.
