Kimberley mine: Work ceased 105 years ago

On 4 August 1914, work was stopped at the Kimberley mine after 43 years of operation. The mine became uneconomical to operate as it reached a depth of 1 083 m without yielding production. This event ended a pioneering episode in South African engineering history. Source: SA History Online Below are images of the Kimberley diamond mine available for licensing.
