Eersteling Monuments


The site of the country's first gold crushing site and its first gold power plant are marked by monuments. Eersteling also played a significant part in history, at the siege of Marabastad on 17 March 1881. The Boers brought in two old boats, with obsolete guns, and used handmade ammunition. The round shot ammunition was handcrafted from beaten iron, beaten iron that came from the Eersteling Mining Company.
