DKS at Keiploftet

For the past three weeks, Ballangen Museum has carried out Geotur with 7th graders from Narvik Municipality. Well over a hundred students have participated in the Geotur that go to Keiploftet in Eiterdalen in Ofoten at the end of May and the beginning of June. The geotours are a DKS offer that is carried out every spring.

The geotur go up to the old quartz quarry up at 380 meters above sea level at Keiploftet in Eiterdalen in Råna. Up at Keiploftet, the students get to help light a fire, and get an introduction to the history of the quartz quarry and the geology up there. Both quartz and feldspar were extracted here.

Thanks for the trip!
