Lee Scoresby talking to a clerk in Novy Odense[src]

This clerk was a man who lived on Novy Odense and worked in the administrative building at the Barents Sea Company Depot. The clerk told Lee Scoresby, when he checked into the building an hour or two after arriving, that the island was in the middle of an oil rush before asking him if he was from the mining company Larsen Manganese. The clerk directed Lee to a customs officer.[1]
