Manganese Mine, Limietberg
11 April All day
Manganese Mine Adventure – take a step back in history – the raiders of the lost ark!
Leaders – Kuba Miszewski, Kelvin Rivett and Deon Rossouw
We will be hiking up to the mine from a locked parking area belonging to Tolcon, on Du Toits kloof pass. The route is off path but not bushed, ascending +/- 200m to the East portal where we will do some exploring, before continuing over a saddle to the West Portal. In this area there are a lot of old machinery bits and pieces and one can easily enter the mined tunnels where we want to explore.
- Head lights
- Overall or old clothes
- Footwear that can get wet
- Water to drink etc
N.B. As we are parking behind a locked gate we will all have to leave together – no one can leave early!
- Parking at the top of old Du Toits Kloof Pass
- Meeting at 09h00
- Sunday 11 April
- We should be back at the cars at 16h30
The club uses a grading system (given in brackets after the hike name) to make it easier for club members to communicate the difficultly of an outing. You can check out our Meets Grading page for details on how to use the grading system, or alternatively you can contact the meet leader directly if you are unsure of the difficulty of a meet.
