The material was used for lifting stones in the downspout of the mine to divide large pebbles when dredging the tin. This kind of Nang was used with ground sluicing which is a watercourse on the slope of a hill forest, made from bamboo and rattan which is easy to find in the area. It was a folk wisdom of the mining people who had limited efficient technology usage, because bamboo and rattan are qualified as spring. When we swing the Nang in the air, stones will be flipped out extremely far from the downspout of the mine.
During the period of King Rama IV (1851 - 1868), 6 mining coolies were corporated to establish a firm for producing materials which were made from bamboo and rattan, in the area of Kuku village, to sell to several mines in Phuket which became the legend of “Lak Kongsi” or the interlacing material community until now.
