The former Coal Mine of Batu Arang , is a scientific and artistic heritage site in Pekan Batu Arang, Rawang that is part of the Gombak-Hulu Langat Geopark. This former coal mine is estimated to be between 25 and 60 million years old, and it is one of the ruins of a coal mine tunnel discovered near Pekan Batu Arang, Rawang. In addition to the former coal mine in Batu Aran, the area features a remnant lake that originally housed Peninsular Malaysia’s largest coal pile and second-largest former open pit mine.
An outcrop of Belata Formation rocks, which comprise the basin’s foundation, and shale rocks, which are also part of the basin deposits of the Coal Layer formation, can be found in this former mining location. This geosite is significant in terms of anthropogenic factors and Lembangan Batu Arang episodes (coal basin).
This is Gombak-Hulu Langat Geopark’s geosite (G30)
