Final report on the results of the cultural heritage walk-down for the final EMP for the Spitskop-Marang 400kv Eskom Power Line between Rustenburg and Northam
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Wandima Environmental Services, on behalf of Eskom Holdings, to conduct a cultural heritage walk-down for the final implementation of the EMP for the Spitskop-Marang 400kv Power line between Rustenburg and Northam. The length of the line is approximately 90km.
During the walk-down a number of sites, features and objects of varying degrees of cultural (archaeological and historical) heritage significance were identified. The report discusses these heritage resources. Some of them will be directly and negatively impacted on by the construction of the Power line and suitable mitigation measures are therefore recommended.
From a cultural heritage point of view, once the mitigation measures have been implemented, the construction of the power line can continue.
