A report on the heritage study related to the site selection process for the WTP and Brine Ponds Project at Exxaro Matla Project near Kriel in the Mpumalanga Province


Archaetnos cc was appointed by GCS to conduct a heritage study to assist with the site selection process of WTP and Brine Ponds at the Exxaro Matla Project. Three sites were evaluated, two on the farm Vierfontein 61 IS and one on the farm Vaalpan 68 IS, close to Kriel in the Mpumalanga Province.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed no sites of cultural heritage significance. Therefore from a Heritage perspective there is no specific preference for any of these sites. This report is seen as ample mitigation and therefore the proposed development can continue
