A diamond mine, working a kimberlite pipe located along a kimberlite dyke. The deposit was discovered in 1876 but already mined earlier by local Bashoto tribesmen for ilmenite. Large-scale mining commenced in 1886 and continued until the start of the Boer War in 1899. Since then, the mine was operated and re-evaluated only intermittently.

Located 10 miles NW of Clocolan.
