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

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.
