The mineral resource dataset gives an overview of deposits of metals (ore), industrial minerals, and natural stone in Norway. The dataset contains both area- and point registrations. The data are collected over a long period of time. Continuously updated by priorities.

Specific usage

The mineral resource dataset gives an overview of deposits of metals (ore), industrial minerals, and natural stone in Norway, and thereby extraction places in Norway that can be used as raw material in the short run and in the longer term. Usefullness is related to ensuring areas for existing and future extraction of raw material to be included in land-use plans in municipalities and counties.
