 / /Geography and history

Klerksdorp, including Stilfontein, Hartbeesfontein and Orkney, is a city located in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda region of the North West Province, South Africa. This city was established in 1837 on the banks of the Schoonspruit. Klerksdorp was founded by Voortrekkers and named after Jacob de Clerq.
