Registering meteorite impact site

GEORGE TOWN, Malaysia: The registration will make Bukit Bunuh one of the world’s reference sites in the study of meteorite impact.

“It will place Malaysia on the World Meteorite Impact Area Map,” said  Centre for Global Archaeological  Research director Prof Mokhtar Saidin.

Speaking after attending the International Conference on the Archaeology of the Meteorite Impact at Bukit Bunuh here yesterday, Mokhtar said it was the  only  meteorite impact site with suevite evidence in Asia.

Suevite is a rock consisting partly of melted material, typically forming rock fragments containing glasses and crystals or lithic fragments (stone tools), formed during an impact.

He said Bukit Bunuh was one of 28  impact sites in the world which exposed suevite evidence out of 896  meteorite impact sites, as well as being the sole impact site from the early Quarternary period (two million years ago).

Mokhtar hoped to submit the application on the matter this year, together with the summary on the conference to the Planetary and Space Science Centre (PASSC), University of Brunswick in Canada.

“We will be collecting the papers and comments from this conference for the application.”

On a related matter, Mokhtar said only four out of 30 open sites, and four  out of 72 caves within the Lenggong Valley had been excavated.

“Bukit Bunuh is one of the four open sites. It is still  being excavated,” said Mokhtar, adding that the excavation, which began in 2001, had yielded 110 chopper tools and 53 hand axes, among others.

Universiti Sains Malaysia vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Omar Osman, who opened the conference, said research had shown that Bukit Bunuh’s importance was not restricted to archaeology, but also geology.

Ramadan 2012 Wishes

As the candle light flame,
Ur life may always be happiness claim;

As the mountain high,
U move without sigh;
like the white linen flair,
Purity is always an affair;
As sunshine creates morning glory,
fragrance fills years as flory;
with the immaculate eternal smile,
attached to u mile after mile;
All darkness is far away,
As light is on its way;

Happy Ramadan al-mubarak
