Northern Cape for MTE’s Expos! The first stop is Hotazel.
Hotazel is a town located in the John Taolo Gaetsewe district in the Northern Cape. The town primarily serves the surrounding manganese mines. The Hotazel Manganese Mines division of BHP Billiton still owns and operates two other manganese mines in the area: Wessels (underground) and Mamatwan (open cut). There is also huge investment coming into the area to develop black rock operations.
