The Dictyonema-bearing black phyllites of Nordaunevoll are intimately related to pillow basalts and intruded by a dolerite dyke-swarm. Their trace element chemistry (up to 1700 ppm V, 150 ppm Mo, and 100 ppm U) and high contents of organic material are similar to alum shales of the same age, deposited on
the Baltoscandian Platform in central and southem Sweden. This black phyllite formation represents an important stratigraphic marker in the Caledonian allochthon of eastrn Trøndelag which may prove to be of regional significance both in Norway and Sweden.
