Denne forekomsten ugjør et belte av mindre grafittmineraliseringer som ligger fra Vikeidet og i nordøstlig retning mot Storelvbukta. I 1988 påviste NGU en rekke helikopter EM-anomalier i dette området. I 1990 ble det utført røsking flere steder i myrene ved Bjørnåsen og Vedåsen. Grafittmineraliseringene er små og gehaltene som regel under 15 % C. Alle røskene ble gravd igjen rett etter prøvetaking, Mineraliseringene i denne forekomsten kan ikke besøkes idag. Helikopter geofysikk innsamlet i 2013 viser en EM anomali som er meget kraftig og det er mulighet for at denne forekomsten er større en tidligere antatt. Koordinatene til prøvepunkter samlet inn før 1996 kan ha dårlig presisjon.
