A big signboard of the Raub Gold Mine (Bukit Koman). Standing next to me is Mr Hiroki Mogami, a japanese postgraduate student from Kyoto University, Japan.
Mr Hiroki is measuring a water quality of a well in a kampung in Raub, Pahang. The well is located upgradient of the mine. The water is fit for drinking
A nice view of open cast Penjom Gold mine in Kuala Lipis Pahang. Gold is associated with carbonaceous rock (black in colour). The cut off grade is 0.8 ppm.

UKM Pakarunding (UKMP) was appointed as a consultant by National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) to conduct a Desktop Study on Groundwater Contamination at Landfill Sites in Selangor. A total of 20 landfills have been identified in Selangor but only 17 were investigated in this study. The other three landfills are too small and no longer operating. From the 17 landfills, 7 landfills are still in operation while the others were either abandoned or closed. Regardless of the current status of these landfills, they pose significant environmental problems and threats especially to the groundwater system in this state. Photo shows the final reports that were completed and already submitted to NAHRIM. Other consultants of the project were Prof Raihan Taha, Prof Rahim Samsudin, Mr Jasni and myself as a project leader.
