Atramadal VMS-deposit in Ølve is in excess of 600 m long, but its thickness rarely exceeds 1 m. Selected grab-samples occasionally return 15-20% Zn or 10-15% Cu (Norrbotten Exploration AB, pers. com.). It has been mined intermittently since 1642 and may be the oldest mine in the Hardanger district. It is known as Christians Gave Kobberverk fra 1772.
