    Description: The Tsantsabane Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located within the north-eastern part of the Northern Cape Province in the ZF Mgcawu District. It is one of the five municipalities in the district. The nearest business centre is Kimberley, which is about 200km away.
     Three main traffic routes provide access to other cities, namely Johannesburg via Kuruman, and the Kalahari and Cape Town via Kimberley. The rest of the Tsantsabane Municipality area comprises Boichoko, Postdene, New Town, Stasie, Groen Water, Skyfontein, Jean Heaven, Marenane (the newly established settlement brought about by the land redistribution), and the well-known Lohatlha Army Battle School.
     Economically, Tsantsabane is known for being rich in minerals, and for its mining, agriculture, manufacturing and farming sectors. Tsantsabane has reinvented itself over the years as one of the leading investment hot spots in the Northern Cape. The construction of the Anglo American Kumba Iron Ore's Kolomela Mine has brought an implosion of development to the area.
