Fortrolig til 01.05.2002. The Altermark area exhibits several types of serpentinite, most of them of commercial interest. Some of the deposits (especially Ellenhågen) may be technically exploitable, and there is a reasonable potential for the extraction of large blocks. Market price for serpentinite is generally low, but with a possibly important exception regarding large commercial blocks. Due to the market situation, the production of serpentinite blocks in Alter- mark is concidered to be possible, but involves a high risk. Proposals for further investigatiions are given.
