Georgraphy and History

Krugersdorp is located in the West Rand of Gauteng founded in 1887 to fulfil the need for a mining town east of the Witwatersrand. The town was named after Paul Kruger, the Transvaal President at the time. In 1952, the West Rand Consolidated Mine was the first in the world to extract Uranium as a byproduct of the gold refining process. Today, manganese, iron, abestos and lime are also mined.

Nearby Krugersdorp is Kromdraai named "Crooked Turn" after a kink  in the meadering Crocodile River. It is a protected conservancy of untouched beauty and archaeological significance.

Today Krugersdorp is still a gold mining city although other minerals are also mined in the area including manganese, asbestos and lime. There are a number of schools in the area and the city supports two nearby townships.
