Lokaliteten ligger like ved "sanatoriet" på Vensmoen. Her opptrer et drag med en grålig, meget urein grovkrystallinsk kalkstein. En analyse som dekker en mektighet på 7.5 m viser at kalksteinen er av mindre bra kvalitet med et innhold på: 48.24 % CaO og 3.93 % MgO (dolomittisk kalkstein). Ref: Bøckman 1953: Draget tilhører den mektige karbonatformasjonen som dekker store arealer oppetter Saltdalen. Kalksteinen er for uren til bruk som råstoff for industrien.
