Sungai Lembing [ the Past & Present ]

Sungai Lembing, short form as Lembing, once possessed one of the world’s largest underground tin mine. The entire length of the underground tunnel is about 400 miles (640 km), 新井 mine with depth of 1400 ft, Mayah mine with dept of 2100 ft, tin mine was 1000 ft, and every level was built at 100 ft in height.

Sungai Lembing residents once had a miserable life, with strings of calamities that hit the town; fire and floods brought destruction to the town followed by Japanese Occupation during the Second World War. Despite the tough times, they also enjoyed prosperous days before, with world’s largest underground tin mine company in operation that brought much progress and development to the town. However, the company stopped its operation in March 1987. In the following year, the government tried to save the industry but the effort came to no avail. The tin mine company could not stay afloat. The flourishing economy was long gone. The machines, equipment, factory were abandoned and left to rot. The mining areas had become bleak and barren. One might begin to wonder how a flourishing town lost its vigour as time passed by…
