Mining is the life blood of Hotazel 

 Set on a bush-covered, featureless plain, Hotazel is home to Samancor’s Mamatwan open-quarry manganese ore mine and sinter plant, and Wessels underground manganese ore mine and railway terminus. It offers a swimming pool to take the sting out of its onomatopoeic name, a mashie golfcourse and squash and tennis courts.
