It is a part of the coast-region in Northern Norway which is here described. It lies to the east of the Vestfjord between 67 degrees 20' and 67 degrees 40' N. The mountainous island of Landegode consists of granite. This rock forms also a large part of the territory on the mainland. The stratified rocks, occurring here are mica-schists, crystalline limestone and gneiss. Of these the mica-schists have the greatest extension. The mica-schists is often speckled with brown garnets. In some places it also contains actinolite and common hornblende. Gneiss occurs here, adjacent to the mica-schist. Generally there is no distinctive demarcation between the gneiss and the mica-schist. The gneiss as well as the mica-schist contain brown garnets, sometimes in considerable numbers. Numerous sheets and dikes of granite are intruded into the gneiss. Crystalline limestone and marble cover a considerable area. The limestone generally contains a small percentage of magnesia, and in several places layers of dolomite also are interclalted in the limestone. Much of the limestone is gray-coloured and yields a fetid odour when blown. It contains in part argillaceoud matter and passes into a calcareous schist. Several moraines occur here from the last phase of the Glacial Period.
