Ngwenya, Africa Iron Mine


In 1967, an iron mine in Ngwenya, Africa broke into tunnels and evidence of mining that were dated by Drs Dart and Beaumont as being from 40,000 B.C. They discovered that at least 100,000 tons of ore has been previously removed. So, we have sophisticated mining occuring when man supposedly was using stone tools…[1]
