Denne forekomsten er i dag fullstendig utilgjengelig. Det er bygget en fabrikk der det gamle bruddet sto. Det var i sin tid drevet på en hvit og grovkornet kalkstein som tilsynelatende var av bra kvalitet. I dag er bare noen små blottninger synlig og det er ikke mulig med noen ny drift eller ny undersøkelse av forekomsten. Kjemiske analyser viser at det finnes partier med CaO innhold på 52.19%, som tilsvarer et kalkspat innhold på 92%.
