A journey of discovery in the last tin dredge of Malaysia, a descendant from Perak state’s 19th century tin mining boom. Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge Virtual Tour lets you get up close to the gentle giant, which was once a monstrous mining masterpiece during its heydays. All you need to do is sign up to start your virtual tour.

Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge No. 5, or TT5, is the last tin dredge in Malaysia. The tin rush in Perak began from 1848 in Taiping, which led to Perak becoming the wealthiest state in Malaysia. When the tin price declined, operations started to shut down and many floating factories were dismantled. Today, only one tin dredge remains. It was built in England in 1938, upgraded in 1963, and had continued its operations for 44 years until August 1982.

Through a series of immersive and high-quality panoramas, see for yourself the environment where tin dredge workers once toiled, socialised and brought Perak into its glory days. Virtually explore Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge No. 5 (TT5) in this VR-powered 360° experience, anytime and anywhere you are.

Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge No. 5

Last Tin Dredge of Malaysia: TT5 is a unique relic from the heydays of tin mining in Perak. In the past, it would scoop up buckets of tin-rich soil and pass the soil through the dredge to extract the tin. While it has fallen into disuse, the tin dredge is a fascinating perspective of the black gold rush in Malaysia.
