Get interactive with our in-house tour guide that tells the fascinating story of Tin Dredge and Tin Mining in Malaysia and discover how the soil brought up from the deep lake by the buckets and processed in the jigs to produce the tin concentrate
Panning for TIN is fun and exciting! At TT5, we provide on-site tin panning activity or “dulang washing” for you and your entire group. After the tour on the dredge, come experience our tin panning and learn how to pan tin at TT5!
You’ll receive a hands-on lesson while you learn the proper technique of separating particles of tin from soil or gravels by washing in a pan with water. This activity is suitable for all ages.
Known as Anjung@TT5, our gallery serves as the visitor centre, ticketing counter and merchandise area. There are also tin dredge equipment and tools used for tin mining.
