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.
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.
These photos’ were taken in October 1961 when the railway had reached the Tepisoh river, but still about 8 miles from the mine at Bukit Ibam.
