Geology Walk

The Kloofendal Nature Reserve is located at the intersection of two major geological faults, the Rietfontein and Witpoortjie faults, creating geological complexity that brought the gold, ultimately leading to the establishment of Johannesburg.

  2. Walk up to the mine visiting several geological exposures along the way.
  3. Visit to the mine showing how the gold was deposited there.
