A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment for the Klip-Kruisfontein gravel quarry on portions 17, 18, 19, 26 and 27 of the farm Kruisfontein 259 JR, near Soshanguve, Gauteng
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Environmental Impact Management Services (EIMS), on behalf of the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment on portions 17, 18, 19, 26 and 27 of the farm Kruisfontein 259 JR near Soshanguve in Gauteng. This is for the proposed expansion of the Klip-Kruisfontein Gravel Quarry.
In the area impacted upon by the proposed development only one site of minimum cultural heritage significance was found, dating to recent historical times. The report gives a discussion of the site and also gives an indication of the methodology followed. It also indicates how to deal with any archaeological material that may be unearthed during quarrying activities in the future.
The site is of a low cultural significance. Therefore this report is seen as suitable mitigation measures in this regard. It is concluded that the proposed development may continue and the site may be demolished.
