A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment for the Dorstfontein Mine east expansion project near Kriel, Mpumalanga Province
Dr JCC Pistorius was appointed by GCS to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment for the Dorstfontein Coal Mine East Expansion Project. It was then arranged with GCS that Archaetnos may do the work on behalf of Dr Pistorius. The Dorstfontein mine is located close to the town of Kriel in the Mpumalanga Province.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed two sites of cultural heritage significance. One of these is of high cultural significance. The planned expansion project will have a direct impact on both sites. The report indicates how to deal with this.
Suitable mitigation measures are proposed. Once these have been implemented, the proposed development may continue.
