REPORT ON A DESKTOP STUDY WITH REGARDS TO THE CULTURAL HERITAGE RELATING TO THE ESKOM RIRIES-MARUPING 22KV LINE SPLIT, NORTHERN CAPE PROVINCE
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Landscape Dynamics to do a desktop study regarding the cultural heritage on the ESKOM Riries-Maruping 22KV line split. This is between Kuruman and Hotazel in the Northern Cape Province. This report gives a broad overview of the heritage of the wider geographical area, but also indicates that the study area was surveyed before.
Sources that were used include a variety of literature sources, databases and unpublished reports. It is clear from the report that the broader environment of the project area had been surveyed numerous times during the past. Most importantly, this specific section of the ESKOM line had been surveyed before.
Results from previous surveys are utilized to conclude that the project may continue. It would be possible to mitigate impact on the two heritage sites present.
