Postmasburg is a town situated in the Northern Cape, was established in 1892, and is well-known for mining. During the 1900s, the town experienced a diamond rush, however iron ore is the main mineral found in Postmasburg. The town has two iron ore producing mines – Kolomela Mine and Assmang Beeshoek Mine.

The Beeshoek mining area is a large iron ore mine location. Beeshoek represents one of the largest iron ore reserves in South Africa and in the world, with estimated reserves of 117.5 million tonnes of ore grading 63.7% iron metal. Beeshoek mine and Kolomela mine are some of the iron ore producers in the Beeshoek area.

Beeshoek mine has undergone a series of large-scale infrastructure projects which include the installation of a full washing and screening plant and a jig plant to beneficiate off-grade ore. In the early 2000s, the mine reached maximum outputs of up to six million tons of ore a year. The mine currently supplies most of its ore to the South African market and exports small volumes.

Kolomela mine produces direct shipping ore. In December 2011, the mine started commercial production. Previously known as Sishen South project, Kolomela mine consists of seven open pits which include Leeuwfontein, Welgevonden, Kapstevel and Klipbankfontein among others. From December 2013, the iron ore reserves at Kolomela mine are estimated to be about 200mt grading 64.4%.

Exhibitors should include any company that supplies equipment or products to the iron ore mines.
