When the Mine closed in 1970, I was given the task of dismantling the treatment plant and shipping it, together with other plant and machinery, to Tanjong Tengku for disposal.
The huge floods at the end of 1970 and early 1971 damaged the railway line in several locations, and finally, huge logs floating down the flooded river damaged the tressells of the Tepisoh railway bridge over the river, twisting the steel rails and causing a derailment of the train and wagons, which caused the plant and machinery to fall into the valley below the bridge.
Cranes mounted on railway flat top wagons were brought from Tanjong Tengku to the coastal side of the damaged bridge and the machinery and plant were lifted up from the valley and loaded back onto flat top wagons and finally hauled down to Tanjong Tengku.
It was a very challenging situation, and I was very
pleased when the project was completed and all the plant and machinery from
Bukit Ibam was finally transferred to Tanjong Tengku.
The steel rail tracks and sleepers were subsequently dismantled and hauled to Tanjong Tengku for disposal, after I had left Rompinco in March 1971
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.
