We strive to be the leading Municipality that offers quality services to the broader community in the most Economic, Affordable, Equitable and Sustainable manner.

Thabazimbi, meaning 'mountain of iron' is the Tswana name for the town and refers to the highly lucrative iron ore reef first discovered here in 1919 and mined since the 1930s when iron and steel production started. The town was proclaimed in 1953 and today the ISCOR Steelworks in Tshwane still draw much of their raw material from Thabazimbi.

Thabazimbi is also good farming country, particularly for cattle-ranching and game-farming. Nature and eco-tourism activities are equally important and the region is fast becoming a well-known and popular destination for nature lovers.
