MINING LANDSCAPES OF THE GAUTENG CITY-REGION
The landscapes of the Gauteng City-Region (GCR) can be traced back to about 3 000 million years ago when a depression in the earth formed an inland sea. Rivers flowing through the area drained into the depression and deposited sediment which would later become one of the largest deposits of mineral wealth on Earth.
