A CULTURAL HERITAGE MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE BLACK ROCK KOPPIE AND OTHER HERITAGE SITES AT THE BLACK ROCK MINING OPERATIONS, NORTHERN CAPE PROVINCE
This document entails a cultural heritage resources management plan for the Black Rock koppie and other heritage sites/ features at the BRMO in the Northern Cape Province. The koppie is one of the oldests remaining mines in the area and the legacy of the earliest manganese mining activities in Southern Africa and therefore obtained cultural significance.
Management protocols are given. These are the basic conservation and preservation principles to be used in managing cultural resources. Recommendations made in the document are done within the parameters of the National Heritage Resources Act (25 of 1999).
The management plan is an open document meaning that it should be adapted and reassessed from time to time. A continuation period of at least five years is given. However any developments done before the expiry of the five-year period should be used to re-evaluate the impact on cultural resources and to make the necessary adaptations to the document. The five-year period ends in 2024
