Description
Skiferen er den samme som i Saue, vel 1 km mot nordvest. Den har vært brukt som takskifer, men kløven er ikke helt god her, så skrotprosenten ble relativt høy. Det er ingen aktivitet i bruddet i dag, men det ser ikke ut for at det er så lenge siden det har vært aktivitet her.
Location
Bruddet ligger i lia 300 - 400 m NV for gården Nordre Kvål.
