A report on a heritage impact assessment for the proposed development of a workers and tourist township on a portion of the farm Doornspruit 507 JQ, Hekpoort, Gauteng


Archaetnos cc was requested by NuCoal Mining (Pty) Ltd, on behalf of BSM Mining (Pty) Ltd, to conduct a site visit on an area earmarked for proposed coal mining development on portion 25 of the farm Klipfontein 568 JR, between Delmas and Ogies, Mpumalanga Province. This site visit was necessitated by a letter from DME, after it was found that no heritage impact assessment was undertaken in the area previously.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed no objects, features or sites of cultural (archaeological or historical) heritage significance in the area of proposed development. The proposed development can therefore continue, taking into cognisance the recommendations put forward at the end of this report.
