Over the past twenty years and more intensively during the past ten years we have seen the rise of six new towns associated with the expansion of the mining industry in the Orange Free State and the establishment of new steel and fuel industries on the borders of the O.F.S. and the Transvaal. In addition great developments have taken place along the line of the gold reefs known as the Far West Rand.
