Bukit Ibam Mine: Transporting supplies and equipments from the coast to Bukit Ibam in 1961/1962

Before the railway line completed all supplies and equipments have to be transported through river

The craft on the Rompin River bringing equipment to Kampong Aur from where it was hauled by Skids behind Bulldozers to the Mine site in 1961.

The first “B” Rocker delivered by rail to Bukit Ibam in 1962.

The distance by river from Kuala Rompin to Kampong Aur was a “Winding” 120 miles, so we were pleased when the railway reached Bukit Ibam and we could bring the Treatment Plant machinery from the coast directly to the Mine by the 50 mile railway.
