A report on a heritage impact assessment for mining development (benefication plant) on the farm Haakdoorndrift 374 KQ, Thabazimbi District, Limpopo Province


Archaetnos cc was appointed by Prescali Environmental Consultants (Pty) Ltd to conduct a Heritage Impact Assessment on the farm Haakdoorndrift 374 KQ, near Thabazimbi in the Limpopo Province. The development of a Benefication Plant is being proposed.

Three alternative sites for the proposed plant were investigated, with all three fairly disturbed. No sites, features or objects of any cultural (archaeological or historical) significance were identified in the area.

From a Cultural Heritage point of view there is therefore no objection to the proposed development, taking cognizance of the recommendations put forward at the end of this report.
