During 1992, tin mining was stopped as a result of reduced market demand thus resulting in market prices plummeted. Nevertheless, the villagers still do the traditional tin mining activities. As early as 6am they went to the Batu Berdaun beach with cycling. An equipment such as trays and filters used for mining activities. These activities are done by people who mostly worked as a fisherman as a side job.
