The Cu-mineralizations in Bidjovagge occur in the Caskias-Stuorajaure group which consists of green-, hornblende-, and graphitic schists, greenstones, and plagioclase-carbonate rocks. Amphibolites and diabases of presumably intrusive origin are common. The mineralizations are localized to feis and carbonaceous schist in the limbs of an anticline striking N-S and dipping 15-30° north. The ore minerals are chalcopyrite, pyrite, and pyrrhotite occurring as impregnation and in veins, occasionally with galena, sphalerite, and magnetite. The best ore is C, consisting of three ore bodies with total reserves of approximately 2.3 million ton ores with 1.5% Cu.
