Mechanised Lateral Development including Fleet Maintenance and Training

The mine, situated 45 kilometres southwest of Johannesburg, is an intermediate to deep-level gold mine comprising two shaft systems – the older South Shaft complex with its main shaft and two sub-vertical shafts, and the newer complex known as Twin Shafts.
