Companya s Mine. The first mine just beyond the 66th mile is Rotan Dahan. Next comes the village of Pusing, leaving which, we keep to the right, having the Tronoh railway line on the left. Tronoh was the site of the largest open-cast tin mine in the world. If visited it is most easily reached by rail from Ipoh, as there are numerous trains daily.
