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.

Installation of the VHF Radio-Telephone at Bukit Ibam in 1961

Here are some historical photographs on Installation of the VHF Radio-Telephone by Malayan Telecoms at Bukit Ibam in 1961

With the VHF connection we were no longer isolated from the rest of the world except by the 50 mile railway, and it provided some peace of mind to handle any possible disasters and emergencies which can occur in potentially dangerous  mining operations.

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

Picture18a
Before the railway line completed all supplies and equipments have to be transported through river

Picture19a
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.

Picture20a
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.
