The Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge is a surviving tin dredge that located close to the town of Batu Gajah, Perak. It is a colossal industrial relic from the days when Malaysia was the world’s largest tin producer.
The tin-bearing soil is scopped up in bucket loads at the front end. Then it passes through an oscillating drum. Before spewing out the waste material at the rear end through a number of chutes, it passes through a system of jigs and screens to extract the tin.
This dredge was built for the Southern Malayan Tin Dredging Ltd, a company formed in 1926 which operated a further 5 dredges in the Batu Gajah and Tanjung Tualang.
The dredge is currently owned by the Perak State Government so there is a chance it will be preserved. This is the last tin dredge in existence in Malaysia.
