Mapping of special sand for Rescon Mapei AS in Nord-Odal

Following a request from Rescon Mapei AS, Nord-Odal, to assess the properties of local sand deposits for use in the company's products, NGU carried out investigations on five deposits. The deposits at 7 Slettholen, 10 Snekkermoen, 12 Moajorder, 15 Knapper and 16 Prærien in Nord-Odal have been examined and sampled. Grain distribution analyses have been carried out on material from all five deposits, as well as alkali reactivity analyses from three of the occurrences. Based on grain distribution analyses and field observations, four of the surveyed deposits are estimated to contain sand masses suitable for Rescon's purposes. The most favourable deposits are those at 7 Slettholen, 10 Snekkermoen and 12 Moajordet.
