Bong Town and its Head Office in 1988

Clicking on the picture to your left you will be led to the pictures of how Bong Town and the Mine looked like before the Civil War started on Dez. 24th, 1989
Pictures covering the years from the beginning, as early as the 1950s, up to the evacuation of the expatriate employees in June of 1990.
I am continously looking for more pictures from these years of Bong´s operation.



Bong Town and its Head Office in 2000

Clicking on the picture to your right you will be forwarded to some pictures of Bong Town, the Mine, the Port and the Country, taken since the outbreak of the Civil War.
These are very saddening pictures of unbelievable destruction and miracoulus survival.
Warning: Please note that some of the pictures in the "Civil War"-Sections contain graphic content which may offend you.
