Lekker one Allan , quick one ........what happened to that place that everyone left?
 :thumleft:

Howzit mate. Long version or short. hehe
Man Asbestos was slowly dying out and then they declared it as unsafe, hence S/A was still in production, in fact this particular mine Diepgezet was the last asbestos mine to close down. The miners etc all got packages and as it was a mine orientated town they got the marching orders. Interesting talk i had with the old head master, as we all were under the impression it only closed about 4 years ago. he in fact was retired and had a house there and also had to move, that was in 95/96 the water fall is man made and was blasted through the mountain as was another which for a while supplied Barbeton with water in the drought they had. There was over 100 kids in the school. Place was also name Msauli and one could even buy shares in the company. So yip a lot of dreams were shattered when they had to close, hence the "Ghost town" This of course is what i was informed about by the head master, as well a a lot of more interesting facts about the old town. (I take it to be reasonably accurate but hey the times and such could differ and in fact have differed according to other people)
