Danish term or phrase: "fjeld i dagen"
Can anyone confirm my suspicion that "fjeld i dagen" means "bedrock"? I cannot find this term in any of my dictionaries. Here is the context:

Mastekonstruktionen boltes fast på 50 cm lange nedborede ø16 galvaniserede bolte faststøbt i fjeld i dagen.

Thanks in advance!

competent bedrock

Meaning not only that the bedrock is exposed, but also that it is not cracked to an extent that makes it unsafe to anchor heavy bolts in it.
