AB Isfjorden och fosforitbrytningen vid Kap Thorodsen på Svalbard sommaren 1872 / Kenneth Awebro.

Title: AB Isfjorden och fosforitbrytningen vid Kap Thorodsen på Svalbard sommaren 1872 / Kenneth Awebro.
Translated title: AB Isfjorden and phosphorite quarrying at Kap Thorodsen on Svalbard in summer 1872.
Author(s): Awebro, Kenneth.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Stockholm: Jernkontorets Bergshistoriska Utskott
Language: Swedish.
In: Arktisk Gruvdrift. Teknik, vetenskap och historia i norr. Föredrag presenterade vid ett seminarium på Jernkontoret den 2 april 1998. (1999.),
Abstract: Describes complexity of AB Isfjorden's attempt to quarry coprolite in 1872 as part of world search for fertiliser. Discontinuance is shown not to depend on power politics, but on over-optimistic assessment by Nordenskiöld and his collaborators, geologists Wilander and Nathorst, and lack of equipment for, and experience in, cold work. Workers probably became sceptical about profitability. Fiasco affected Sweden's attitude to Svalbard for rest of union with Norway.
