Known as The Town Of Two Summers, due to its extended summer temperatures, Phalaborwa is known for its Iron and Copper Ore.
The town was established in the 1950’s, when modern mining began to exploit the Palabora Igneous Complex. This occurred about 1200 years after the unique rock formation was discovered and mined by the first metal workers settling in this barren part of the country.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the Phalaborwa region was occupied by metalworking communities during at least two periods in the last 1200 years
