A report on a cultural heritage impact assessment for the proposed Elandsdrift Empr, near Mooinooi, Northwest Province


Archaetnos cc was requested by Prescali Environmental Consultants (Pty) Ltd to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment for a proposed Elandsdrift opencast mine. This is located close to Mooinooi in the Northwest Province.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed six sites of cultural heritage significance on the property. These will be impacted upon by the development and therefore suitable mitigation measures are recommended.

The proposed development can only continue after these have been implemented.
