General Information

Brakpan is situated in the Gauteng Province in South Africa. Located south-east of Johannesburg in the Gauteng province, the town of Brakpan first got its name from the British in the 1880’s from a brackish lake near the settlement that would dry up every year and so would become a “brackish pan” which then became ‘Brakpan’, the town’s name.

Although it was a suburb of Benoni until 1912, Brakpan has grown steadily over the years and in 1888 a large coal mine and coal powered power station in the area first started to draw large numbers of people to the area. Today Brakpan is a mainly a gold and uranium mining town and a distribution centre for industry due to the fact that it is centrally located. 

Activities and Attractions

In its early days Brakpan was known for having the world’s highest mine dump. With a height of 120 meters above ground level it was higher than all but one of the pyramids.
