Mineraliseringen på kobbertoppen består av ei mindre linse av magnetkis som ligger som et lag i rusten glimmerskifer, "Lapphellerenskifer". Det er ikke funnet analyser fra mineraliseringen eller analyser fra kjerneboring, slik at kobbergehalten er vurdert visuelt til ca. 0.1 %. Ingen litteratur er funnet. Stien, R. 1993. Tipp på ca. 10 m3 er delvis skjult av ei snøfonn. Rusten kalkstein. Sannsynligvis ligger også skjerpet under snøen. L. F. -94.

Abstract:
Bekkesedimenter fra 334 prøvelokaliteter i Sulitjelma-området ble innsamlet med en prøvetetthet på 1 prøve pr. 10 km2. Rapporten inneholder tabeller og resultkart over 28 elementer oppsluttet med HNO3 og bestemt med ICAP.

Abstract:
The eugeoclinal rocks of the Sulitjelma region occup a large depression in the Norwegian Caldonodrd betwwen the Nasafjell tectonic window of Precambrian rocks in the south and the Tysfjord window in the north. The age of the rocks is thought to be Cambro-Silurian. The regionl metamophism is mainly in greenschist facies in the lower units, amphibolite facies in the Gasak Nappe and greenschist to amphibolite facies in the Fauske Nappe. Some of the largest sulphide deposits in Norway are located near Sulitjelma. The different types of mineralizations occurring in the region are briefly described.
