Although 69 of them failed due to epidemic complaint conditions, thriving drum ore mining wasestablished.This mining attracted the attention of numerous dealers who traded introductory musts to the miners to gain a portion of the drum ore. Dealers erected shops at the mouth of the Klang and Gombak gutters. Because of this, a megacity was born.
