Kolar Gold Fields

Kolar Gold Fields, located about 20 km from Zion Hills, was India’s most significant gold mining location. The now silent mines and the mining town with its historic Gymkhana Club, Asia’s first Electric Sub Station, remnant Cyanide Hills, a 150 year old golf course etc to name a few, offer more than a glimpse of a bygone era of colonialism and mining.


KGF Gymkhana was the first club established in Kolar Gold Fields and is fourth oldest golf club in India. It has a regal colonial ambience, now more than a century old, was built of stones quarried from the area itself, with beautiful teak wood doors and windows. The club is equipped with a Bar, Shuttle Court, Billiards, Tap Dance Floor and other indoor sports.


Electricity sub station : From the inception of the mines in 1880 until the year 1902 all machinery in KGF were worked by steam power. it was the first 700 KW Hydro Electric Power station in Asia launched by British Resident General Donald Robertson in Mysore which transmitted power to KGF On 30th June 1902 from the Cauvery Falls power station at Shivanasumudaram through longest transmission line of 80 Miles.


Cyanide Hill : The gold mining process at the KGF Mines that generated 32 million tones of waste had been dumped in 16 locations. These dumps are the accumulation of the slurry waste and residue that was piped out of the mills, after the gold was extracted from the ore. The residue slowly hardened over time and formed huge hills around all the mines in KGF of soft fine dust. Around one lakh saplings i.e 40,000 agave and aloe vera, 40,000 honge (Pongamia pinnata) and 20,000 grass seeds were planted on the mounds. Manure produced from the waste generated in Bengaluru was procured to nourish them. Many film shootings have been done on these hills.



Zion Hills was earlier called Champion Reef, named after the deepest mine (3230 m deep) in KGF and the second deepest mine in the world.
