The sulphide deposits of the Rødhammeren Mine, Sær-Trøndelag are reinterpreted as regionally metamorphosed, volcanogenic ores of the Kuroko type. The sequence in the mine is thought to have been inverted during the Caledonian orogeny. Proposals for the use of this concept during subsequent stratigraphic-structural studies and base-metal exploration programmes are forwarded.
