A report on a detailed baseline heritage study for the Booysensdal Contractors Camp, close to Steelpoort, Limpopo Province


Archaetnos cc was appointed by GCS to conduct a detailed baseline heritage study for a temporary contractor’s camp on the farm Kennedy’s Vale 361 KT. The site is located approximately 15 km from the town of Steelpoort, Limpopo Province.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed two sites of cultural heritage significance. One is of medium heritage significance and one of low significance. The latter will be directly impacted whereas the first falls just outside of the area to be surveyed. This report is seen as ample mitigation and therefore the proposed development can continue

Discussions were also held with local residents. Information obtained from them is included in the report, together with desktop data on the area.
