The Last Dredge in Malaysia
A much forgotten era in the mining history of Perak known to the world of tin, for it contains the largest single deposit of alluvial tin ore field in the world.
The present generation would have forgotten the people, the early immigrants, their hopes and fears, their achievements, failures...... some sold as slaves, looking for better lives in a strange country of not knowing their future whether in failures or success. They knew their tasks are doubly difficult, but sadly no one ever attempts to examine and highlight their tribute.
The methods of mining are tin dredging, opencast mine, dulang washing or panning, gravel pump mining, underground mining and dry excavation opencast mining.
Have you ever know where the world deepest mine is... which is 600 meters deep and has a 332km long tunnel?
