    Background: Heavy explosives and Iarge bulldozers are gorging a way through the solid granite hills near Fort Victoria, Southern Rhodesia -- work which marks the start of the GBP3,000,000 Kyle Dem Project.

    The narrow gorge between the hills will eventually be joined by a 200-foot high concrete dam. Work on the foundations is well under way.

    Above the dam site, a temporary platform and other essential construction units are being built. Part of the Kyle scheme calls for the immediate construction of a 28-mile long concrete canal for frigation.
