Skjerpet ligger 80-100 m fra havet, men det er vanskelig å se derfra. Der er utsprengt ca 2 m3. Den mineraliserte sonen har orientering 38°/80°S. Det ses nesten ikke sulfider i fast fjell, sulfidlaget har vel neppe hatt en utstrekning større enn 3 m og en tykkelse på høyst 10 cm. Malmen ligner den fra Fugløy, d.v.s. massiv magnetkis som inneholder litt kobberkis eller en skifrig gabbroid bergart med litt magnetkis og 1-2% kobberkis som sitter på smale sprekker. Mineraliseringen er nok likvidmagmatisk.
