Postmasburg is a town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, located approximately 170 km east of Upington, 67km north of Griquatown and 58km west-south-west of Danielskuil. We are also part of the Green Kalahari. Originally a station of the London Missionary Society called Sibiling, it became a Griqua village with the name Blinkklip. It was proclaimed a town on 6 June 1892 and named after the Reverend Dirk Postma, founder of the Reformed Church.
Postmasburg even had its own diamond rush. The first diamond was discovered in 1918 and as a result an open cast mine grew. The mine was permanently flooded in 1935 and as a result, just like Kimberley, Postmasburg could also boast its very own “Big Hole”. This hole is over 45m deep and filled with fish. It’s a beautiful sight visited by many. Although diamonds are still mined here, the most important mineral is manganese.
The new Khumba mine, Kolomela, started in the last few years and turned this into a fast developing town and an ideal place to stay over for people visiting the surrounding mines.
