Georg will always be known to as the Electrician from 3 Plant and along with the late Mike Stenson helped moderate this forum in it's early and more busy days.

I too recall the odd Skype session with Georg, one in particular was when the late  Frau Anita Reschke was visiting at my house in Omund and Georg called, the two of them sat there talking about the past in the German narrative.

Georg had a wealth of knowledge about the mining area and in particular the 3 plant commissioning.......

To the entire Ruf family, my sincere condolences on his passing,

Condolences to Heather,Barry,Megan and Mandy on the passing of their husband/father.

Cliff Jones was an upstanding man who had a big heart and a soft voice.

I always admired his strong morals and principals and the way he always cared about everyone else.

He maintained an amazing garden on the corner house on 9th Avenue in Oranjemund.

Go Well Brother!

Well I guess Riaan is correct , mines are not infinite and will close...

What gets me though, is the  belief that the town will still be a good town to invest in.

A place where one can still reside after the mining comes to a close.

Disposable income in the town has already diminished extensively and once the locals become "normalized" as any other town we are going to see the local economy come crashing down!

Through no fault of anyone on particular, that's just how mines roll......

I think in the long term, perhaps in 10 years from  now we shall see the town establishing herself, sadly by that time the damage will have been completed.

Any person wanting to invest financially in the town will need to have deep pockets ........ it's going to be a rough ride....
