ROMPIN. Thurs – About 100 of the 1,172 retrenched workers of the Rompin mines here will continue to work at the mines for another year.
They have been employed by George Cohen Far East Pte. Ltd. – agents appointed to dispose off the $10 million worth of plant and equipment of the Rompin Mining Co., which ceased production recently.
The resident manager of George Cohen, Mr. Philip Robinson, said today that the 100 workers would be needed, among other things, to run the power station, and maintain the office account and machinery at Rompin Mining Co.
He said that the company had received numerous enquiries for the equipment from local and foreign companies.
Mr. Robinson added that preference would be given to the retrenched workers who intended to buy the equipment. – Bernama
