Fra Sandvika må en gå 6-700 m på en smal sti mot Hisdalen inntil en ser en rustsone som ligger 20-30 m mot øst for stien. Ovenfor rustsonen ligger to 15 m lange stoller. Den øvre ligger 40-50 m over den nedre. Stollene er drevet inn i samme horisont og parallelt med lagdelingen og forskifringen. Ved begge stoller ses en 20-25 cm tykk mineralisert sone. Lokaliteten er uinteressant, og den ble ikke prøvetatt.
