IPOH, March 23 (Bernama) — Some 14,000 hectares in Pengkalan Hulu have been identified for minerals and tin ore prospecting, said senior state executive councillor Hamidah Osman said today.

She said the state government would receive five per cent royalty for the minerals and tin ore mined.

A 30-year mining concession has been awarded to Rahman Hydraulic Tin Sdn Bhd, she said.

Minerals and Geoscience Department director-general Datuk Yunus Abdul Razak signed the MoU on behalf of the state government while Rahman Hydraulic director Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Ajib Anuar inked for the company.
