dc.description UMaT Library International Archives Week #ArchivesAreYou: Tarkwa: Our Mines, Our Railways en_US
dc.description.abstract In celebrating/observing this year’s International Archives Week 6th – 10th June, 2022 themed #ArchivesAreYou, the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) Library chose “Tarkwa: our mines, our railways” as a subtheme. Tarkwa (Tacquah) is a mining town noted for the mining of gold. In this presentation, we take a trip from UMaT through the town focusing on some notable places that make Tarkwa a mining town. We continue the trip (by road) to Takoradi because there is no coach service between the two towns, making whistle stops along the way. On arrival at Takoradi, we share some of the extant materials we found in the offices of the Ghana Railway Company Ltd. (GRCL). en_US
