It was quite an achievement to construct, for builders had to work with waves washing over the rock.
The original concrete foundation developed cracks from the buffeting of the waves. The best way to repair the damage was to build a granite sheath around the base, twelve and a half feet high. The nearest source of granite was the large boulders on the seashore, which could be worked wherever they had been exposed on the surface.
Stonemasons were employed to carefully chisel out 4 ton rounded sections, which were first assembled on the beach to make sure they fitted together perfectly, then taken to the lighthouse on a specially made barge.
They were offloaded by a derrick attached to the pier jutting out from the lighthouse, and pulled to the tower by an aerial railway, and from there carefully assembled around the base in waist high water.
In those days the lighthouse was manned by two keepers, who stocked their tower with ample quantities of food, lamp oil, water, and other necessities. They took turns being relieved after a week at sea by another keeper, if and when weather permitted him to be rowed out.
So next time you are in the Seaforth-Boulders area give the penguins a miss, and look out for signs of chiselling on the rocks. In those days Hout Bay was a sleepy fishing village. So the best way of transporting the ore was by sea, and to get the ore there a m cylindrical corrugated iron chute was made that ran downhill at nearly 45 degrees.
From workings at the top, ore was shovelled in to come rumbling down with a thunderous roar into a sump at the bottom. From there a crane hoisted the ore into cocopans, which were railed along a specially built jetty to an awaiting barge, and from there it was towed to an awaiting ship in Table Bay?
Constant problems arose from ore overheating in its downward passage through the chute, and getting stuck. This meant sections of the chute had to be taken apart and the ore dynamited loose.
A mythical story arose about the miners being drunk and sending down too much ore in an avalanche that sank the barge. This was impossible as the barge was never docked anywhere near the bottom of the chute.
The mining methods proved slow and in some tons of ore were produced, but in a mere tons. A good place to learn a lot more about the mine is the Hout Bay Museum in Andrews Road, where there are enlarged photographs.
During the First World War, the Italians were allies and the road was built with local convict labour and completed in It was not possible to visit the shaft, since it had fallen in, and also the cross beams and shores, together with most of the ladders in it were broken and crushed together.
Cobalt then meaning infusible ore, as the metal was only discovered in From this and other sources a story emerges. A dispute arose and the miners asked the Governor for a transfer. He did and reported no silver.
Nobody knew better than he what happens to those who waste money, so when he worked the Steenberg the following year and found there was no silver he was a worried man. This of course would have quickly petered out, and he would have been sent on to Sumatra, but not in chains like his predecessor.
There is no reason to believe the mines were salted. They were never offered up for sale and remained the property of the Dutch East India Company. The first true bogus mine was worked in at Groot Drakenstein by a Frans Muller, who cheated many leading citizens out of money.
An old photograph of the mine in its heyday shows a large and sturdy three-legged hoist towering above a group of miners at the shaft.
Nearby stood a tall steam boiler, and rail tracks had been laid out for cocopans. Unfortunately the ore was erratically scattered in solid rock, and it was cheaper to mine alluvial tin in the Durbanville area. The mine ceased operations during the 1st World War after producing some four tons of ore concentrates.
The mine is easily reached by a dirt road at the end of Chelmsford Road, in Vredehoek. It passes the old Vredehoek Quarry, also worth a visit to inspect its tunnel entrance. The mine is soon reached where one can easily spot the stone ore-crushing platforms and concrete ore-washing troughs alongside a stream.
This stream floods in winter and barricades of rock wrapped in wire netting have been erected. A short walk along a path upstream brings one to a small weir used in the mining days, which is now filled with dark coloured water and is home to croaking frogs.
This is as much as most can hope to see. Erosion has made it impossible to negotiate the steep sides of the ravine above the weir. That is where the shaft and adit of the Argus article lie. Nearer at hand is a second mine and adit, but well hidden with only a stone wall to indicate its whereabouts.
It would be a filthy business to crawl inside because the entrance is under a metre high.Cornelius - Centurion of Caesarea Phillipi · Cornelius of Caesarea.
