A report on a baseline heritage assessment for the Slatercoal Exploration and Mining Project, close to Viljoenskroon, Free State Province


Archaetnos cc was appointed GCS to conduct a baseline heritage assessment for the Slater Coal exploration and mining project. This is close to the town of Viljoenskroon in the Free State Province.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed one site of cultural heritage significance. The site will be directly impacted on by the mining activities, but it is of a low cultural significance. This report is seen as ample mitigation in this regard. The proposed exploration and mining can therefore continue.
