Geocache Description:

[LV] Nīkuces akmens – dižakmens Mazsalacas novadā

[EN] Boulder Nīkuces – rather big erratic boulder within the Mazsalaca Municipality


[LV] Projekta "Labdarības skola" ietvaros Mazsalacas vidusskolas 7.-8. klašu skolēni palīdzēja biedrībai "Ziemeļvidzemes ģeoparks" ierīkot 6 slēpņus - interesantās novada ģeovietās.

Slēpņu sēriju vieno nosaukums “Ģeoparks-Mazsalacas skola”, un šie seši slēpņi ir:

1. Kolu akmens - 3. līdz 5. lielākais akmens Mazsalacas novadā;  

2. Ramatas lielakmens - lielākais Mazslacas novada akmens; 

3. Nīkuces akmens  - dižakmens - rapakivi granīts; 

4. Vīkšēnu pagrabi  - smilšakmenī izdobti pagrabi, daļēji applūdināti; 

5. Skaņaiskalns - visiem zināmā smilšakmens klints ar atbalsi, ko parasti apskata no pretējā krasta; 

6. Dzelves kalns - pacēlums, kas nodala Salacas un Laņģupītes senlejas, ar veselu rindu smilšakmens atsegumu, alu un avotu.

Skolēni tīmekļa materiālos un literatūrā paši sameklēja informāciju par konkrēto ģeovietu – Nīkuces akmeni. Tā ir sekojoša:

Rapakivi granīts, virszemes daļas tilpums 11m3. Nikuce –tipisks upes straujteces posms. Atrodas Mazsalacas novadā, Ramatā Dauģēnu takā.

Pie skolēnu atrastās informācijas vēl var piebilst, ka Nīkuces akmens rapakivi ir savdabīgs granīts ar apaļiem laukšpata kristāliem (ovoīdiem), un šis iezis ir aptuveni 1,5 miljardus gadu sens. Akmeni uz Ziemeļvidzemi no tagadējās Somijas un Krievijas pierobežas, Vīborgas rapakivi masīva, ir atnesis pēdējā apledojuma šļūdonis, un tas visticamāk notika pirms kādiem 15 000 gadu.

Akmens nosaukts Nīkuces upītes vārdā, kuras krastā tas atrodas.

Esi uzmanīgs, un atceries, ka pats atbildi par savu drošību!

[EN] Society North Vidzeme Geopark together with Mazsalaca Secondary School arranged 6 geocaches within outstanding geosites of the territory of Mazsalaca Municipality.

Students themselves prepared the information concerning the geosite where the cache has been placed. Here it is:

Rapakivi granite with surface volume 11m3. Nikuce – a typical swift running river stage.

Nikuces erratic boulder - 8th biggest erratic boulder in Mazsalacas municipality. Nikuces erratic boulder is located in Mazsalacas municipality, Ramatas - Daugenu trail.

In addition it should be said that erratic boulder Nīkuces consists of rapakivi granite that is dated as 1.5 billion years old. The boulder has been carried to current place from Vyborg (Viipuri) rapakivi massive, SE Finland, during the last Ice Age – most probably 15 000 years ago.

Be careful, and remember that you are responsible for your own safety!
