A brief outline of the geology of the Holandsfjord area is given and the structural evolution and the granitization processes are discussed. It is concluded that the large masses of granite overlying the paragneisses may be the erosional remnants of a former, extensive sheet of granite corresponding to the sheets of granite in Sweden in the eastern part of the Caledonides. The thrusting cannot be proved in the area in question as folding and granitization have obliterated all traces of cataclastic deformation.
