Randfontein is situated 45km west from Johannesburg in Gauteng in South Africa.
In 1889 the mining financier JB Robinson bought the farm Randfontein and he started the Randfontein Estates Gold Mining Company. From 1890 a town began to establish itself around the mine.
The town was established in 1890 to serve the new mine. Randfontein was administered by Krugersdorp until it became a municipality in 1929.
Much has changed since the early days and Randfontein now serves as a industrial and residential area for many workers who live in the area and travel to surrounding areas daily for work, especially Johannesburg. Other industries in Randfontein include engineering, food processing, and textile manufacture.
