A report on a basic assessment relating to cultural heritage resources for the proposed construction of the Bulge-Dorset 132KV power line, Limpopo Province
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Texture Environmental Consultants to conduct a basic assessment relating to cultural heritage resources for the proposed construction of the Bulge-Dorset 132kV power line. This is close to Vaalwater in the Limpopo Province. Two options for the route were surveyed.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed no sites of cultural heritage significance. The main reason for this is the inaccessibility of farms used for game farming. However the area was also surveyed via helicopter.
From a heritage point of view both alternatives may be used. It would however be necessary to survey certain areas, especially those with a high probability of having cultural sites. The proposed development may continue bearing in mind the possibility of finding chance sites.
