Geophysical investigations of graphite occurrences in Bø and Øksnes municipalities, Vesterålen, Nordland County, Northern Norway 2015-2016
Geological and geophysical investigations in Vesterålen were carried out during 2015 and 2016 with additional funds from the Nordland County Administration. A first report (Gautneb, et al., 2017) emphasizes the geological aspects of the graphite prospecting (trenching, sampling, analyses, mineralogy and beneficiation tests). This report describes the results from ground geophysical mapping of graphite mineralisations at five locations in the Vesterålen area. These are: Møkland (UTM 486848 – 7627365), Sommarland (UTM 488080 - 7625780), Kvernfjorddalen (UTM 488445 – 7619975) and Haugsnes (UTM 488600 - 7619375) in Bø municipality and Smines in Øksnes (UTM 498793 – 7639018) municipality.
