Labuan Chimney is one chimney which facinates me most,
it's mystery and actual purpose it was build for was so intriguing
that it caused me to start this chimney blog.
It had been 2 long years since my last visit to this beautiful chimney,
visits numbering more than a dozen time
since i first set foot on the this beautiful island in 1992
and being right under it again make me feel so contented and telling myself,
yes, i am back again trying to solve the mystery.
Earlier Post on Labuan Chimney
The Chimney Museum have a nice display of exibits from the coal mining era,
it will be very complete if a mine's train is still around.
The chimney viewed from Lubuk Temiang beach.
The statement on the plaque about 'the inner wall of the chimney showed no sign of burning'
needs a change as there are clear sign of burned and overheated bricks
at the lowest 2 meter.
These over heated stains on the bricks clearly shows heat is moving up the chimney
from the two opening most probably from two brick kiln ,
one from each opening,kiln that could have been used to make bricks(for used in tunneling the mines)
or pottery(including chinese ceramics)
as there are plenty or clay and kaolin in the area
coupled with abundance of coal as a source of heat.
The pottery at Batu Arang,Selangor under similar conditions(underground coal mine)
This brick structure is probably a wall of a kiln.
Ceramic pottery littering the area behind the chimney towards Kubung Bluff
is a signs of early activitiy at Tanjung Kubung.
These are found by the seashore along Lubuk Temiang beach.
