The map accompanying this paper shows the mines and ore deposits of Northern Norway (the three northern counties), and forms the second and final part of a work started by the late Steinar Foslie in publishing maps and general descriptions of the mines and ore deposits of our country. The amp contains 834 deposits, the greater part of which is situated in the Nordland mining district (IV on the map). To facilitate the use of the map, the deposits (and mines) are marked with circles of different sizes and colours. This map has, however, only four different sizes (instead of eight on Foslie's map). This present map has, however, five colours instead of the only four previously. The sizes refer only to the presumed importance of the deposits or mines. Mines being worked at the present time (1963) are marked with a white line drawn horizontally through the circle. The mines and the deposits are numbered continually for each of the two mining districts. On the map are drawn the boundaries of the different municipalities (herred) and deposits inside these are numbered in succession. The object of this paper is mainly to give a short summary of the different ore types in relation to the geological fromations, and the distribution of the metals.
