Rompin Mining Co. – Tanjong Tengku Installation

Picture1Ore Wagon dumping bin

These photographs are of the Coastal operations at Tanjong Tengku from where the iron ore was carried by lighter to the ships anchored offshore.

It was not possible to load directly into the ships because of the shallow water at the loading jetty. At low tide, there was only 1.5 metres draught over the sandbar offshore, therefore the ore had to be lightered over the sandbar to the ships laying out in deeper water offshore.
